SATA disk not recognised by Breezy

Hi - I've recently bought an ASUS Vintage-AE1 bare bone system and 
installed Breezy Badger on it.  All aspects of the system work fine 
except the SATA disk which is recognised by the BIOS, but not seen at 
all by Ubuntu.  The BIOS supports the following configuration options 
for the onboard PCI SATA Controller:

    * disabled
    * native
    * RAID by ROM

None of these seem to help.

I have checked the mailing list and searched the Ubuntu bugzilla but 
have had no joy.

The system chipset is the SIS 760GX and supports Serial ATA RAID.
The disk is a MAXTOR 6L250S0 250Gb drive.

Frustratingly, if I boot from a Tom's Root Boot CD, the disk is visible 
as /dev/hde, so I know it does work!  I am assuming that Ubuntu is 
either not loading the correct driver or having a problem initialising 
it.  I attach the dmesg bootlog from Ubuntu.

Please can anyone advise?
