OK, I found some more information on this.  Here is a report of the exact 
same problem I have:

Apparently as of kernel 2.6.8 the sata_nv driver is broken.  I don't want 
to use the Sil controller on my board, I would rather have the nVidia 
driver working.  Frustrating because it works in the 2.6.7 kernels!
