Some hand holding needed

I am struggling a bit with my Intel DG965SS motherboard, in getting 
Debian unstable running properly.  What happens is that my DVD/CD-R 
drive is on the IDE channel, and is not being recognised (disks are 
SATA and I am accessing these fine).

I have just built (using kernel-package) a version of linux 2.6.19 - 
because as far as I can see from the debian-release mailing list there 
is a reluctance to push it through the system with Etch not yet 
released, but for me its essential in that this version of the linux is 
the first to support the Agpgart module for my motherboard and without 
it I can't get X to run. I used the standard debian .config file and 
all the newer devices are included as modules. In particular the piix 
module - which is supposedly the module required to support the IDE 
channel on this motherboard.

If I run lspci -v then at least there is some reference to this device

but there is nothing in my /dev that indicates it has been seen.  So I 
am a little stuck as to what to do now.

Ideas anyone.
