Hi Neils

U edited /etc/modules as root? To my knowledge that should ensure the piix 
module is loaded after rebooting. may post you /etc/modues file? And I see u 
figured out the switch I forgot about as well

Here is the contents of my /etc/modules:


That it worked at all seems a good sign that the prob is driver related and 
related to the prob with libata as was pointed out earlier on the list when I 
was going thru this with my sata dvd drive. It may be that u'll also have to 
edit fstab? Not sure there
I have edited /etc/fstab, but "sda and sda1"  does not exist in /dev (only the 
few times sdb1 has worked properly, after my formatting it with gparted and 
then once, I told about after I tried your instructions?
