This is a serial ATA chipset.

Make sure you have sata_via module listed in /etc/mkinitrd/modules and
then re-install the 2.6 kernel (this will create a new initrd image).

Then at boot time, edit grub so that root=/dev/sda1

I know 2.4 shows the drive as hda but 2.6 will see it as sda because
this is how libata works.

Almost give up...

I did exactly what this lists suggest...(recompile with sata modules, edit grub, and add entry in /etc/mkinitrd/modules) but it's still produce same error when booting the new kernel.
Is there any clue...?
