Question Kernel support SATA Maxtor 80Gb Y6080M0

Hi community ,

I have this problem trying to compiling my kernel 2.4.29 I miss some configurations to support my SATA Maxtor 80Gb Y6080M0. Someone know the right options to have support.

Error message follow:

VFS: Cannot open root device "806" or 08:06
Please append a correct "root=" boot option

Thanks in advance.
