The following is my lspci output. 0000:00:0e.0 Unknown mass storage 
controller: Integrated Technology Express, Inc. IT/ITE8212 Dual channel 
ATA RAID controller (PCI version seems to be IT8212, embedded seems (rev 11)

So the kernel seems to recognise the controller. How do I install a 
driver for it so I can use the hard disk attached?
