Thanks. When enabling lots of options I noticed that I had stupidly enabled
a similarly named option (I think CONFIG_SATA_VIA) instead of CONFIG_PATA_VIA
which I needed. Thanks for the help.

I would recommend improving chapter 8.3 of the book (configuring and compiling
the kernel) by adding these hints about configuring the kernel, i.e.
using lspci,
lsmod, and enabling many options.

Thanks again,
