I can try.  I did an lsmod and looked through the modules but I didn't see 
anything.  It may be compiled into the kernel.  Or maybe I'm just too 
tired and missed it (I'll look again).  Or is there something else I 
should be looking for?

The Ubuntu installer does try and load the sata_nv module.  It just sits 
there for a long time before it eventually times out. "ata1 is slow to 
respond" "ata1 failed to respond" etc. in the logs... Not sure what's 
going on there.
