I knew what the argument did, but because I had just awakened, I was a little slow to come around, because I use knoppix & Helix on and off, although I've never had to customize the boot options, I did read the Helix manual that explains all of that. Which is where I got some of the knowledge. I worked pretty hard the night before. Glad you found that link though. But basically you were using a generic IDE driver/module to interact with the SATA controller instead of using a generic SATA driver/module.
Enjoy your Mepis.
