Ah, interesting. 
That said, according to this page, my old nForce2 motherboard is
supported, using the sata_nv driver.
I checked using the 'lsmod' command, and I do have libata and sata_nv
loaded.. still, my PATA hard drives show up as hdx not sdx. 
So there must be more to it than meets the eye ;-)
