[xubuntu-users] boot option to load sata_nv first. 12.04 install

I'm attempting to install 12.04 desktop i386 on a machine with 3 sata drives 
and 1 pata drive.

As on other installs the pata ide drive is being picked up before the sata 
drives (sata_nv). I can fix this after the os is installed by 
editiing /etc/initramfstools/modules to load sata_nv before the pata drive, 
that is no problem, but I would like the drives to be picked up in what I 
consider to be the correct order (sata_nv) first. this will mean harmony with 
all the other os's on this machine.

On archlinux I can set the boot option "earlymodules=sata_nv", but this won't 
work on other os's. Is there some boot option I can use on Xubuntu 12.04 that 
will cause sata_nv module to be loaded before the pata ones.

Thinking caps on guys!
