One thing I'm confused on is the ide drivers in the 2.6 kernel. While
  reading the help under ATA, etc. it states that I should be using the
  scsi driver for ide drives unless I have legacy equipment (which I
don't, Vision computers x86 based, new in the last 2 weeks), but under
  the scsi drivers section it asks for a specific driver and does not
  list anything remotely close to what i've got.
  So, I'm at a logjam.
  Thanks for the help

I ended up giving up on this for the moment since I need to get this machine deployed so I went with the kernel-image package from debian.org. This, of course, worked perfectly and loaded up in no time and booted the first time out of the blocks. This is great but I'd still like to figure out what I was doing wrong with my home-compliled kernel. Is there a way to compare the two kernels to see which module/s the packaged kernel has installed that I missed in my kernel? Thanks again for the help
