I've just tested it on my system:
athlon64 (in 386 mode...), SATA, RAID 5, LVM, reiserfs

it didn't worked out of the box, I had to add "sata_nv"
to /etc/mkinitramfs/modules
but it is working now :)

strangly I had some frightening messages at startup, something like
"can't find sata_nv.ko" and several syntax error of modprobe

having it automagically add the sata_* modules would make it almost
perfect (I had a similar bug in the past with debian's mkinitrd and

nice work, thanks :)
