This worked. I was able to install the Hardy kernel and then boot using
it. My drives show up as SCSI devices (/dev/sdxn) instead of IDE devices
and the pata_via module is being loaded. The IDE modules are not
loading. Whatever was broken in Gutsy seems fixed in Hardy. There a
couple of problems, that will go away when I upgrade to Hardy. I get a
Cups backend error and the VBox modules won't load. Other than that,
things look good.
