SATA controller not working in Breezy?

I have a ASUS A8V motherboard with a VIA chipset.
My 2 SATA drives are not recognized at Breezy install time...
The chipset is a 82C586/82c686 with a SouthBridge VT8237 and a VT6420 
SATA chip.
Normally it should work with the sata-via module but after having loaded 
it successfully, it's not recognized...
Any idea? Is it a known problem? Perhaps corrected in an updated Breezy 

PS: My IDE CDROM is well recognized so it's clearly a SATA problem.
