It's possible Lenny doesn't recognize the SATA controller. Lenny (5.0) is long out of date, give Squeeze (6.0) a try, and post if you still have problems.

Some people seem to have had success adding these bootcodes:

Code:
noapic nolapic noreplace-paravirt
Why are you installing Debian 5.0? That's an old and unsupported version. It's your choice, but you should install Debian 6 at minimum.

Depending on your skill level with Linux (Debian specifically) may I sugegst you consider Debian Wheezy, which is the next stable release, because it may be released sometime this year and is probably more up to date with your hardware.

I second Wheezy. I use it on my desktop and laptop, no issues here, and newer kernel may likely have what you need.
