You'll need to enable support for your specific PCI chipset in the kernel.

I understood the part of enabling the specific driver support in the kernel. What I asked was how to find out which ide support is currently enabled and how to go about changing it if needed. Thanks.

It would be in the kernel configuration file. Just do a kernel config, go into the device drivers, look at IDE and look at the chipset list.

Oops! Is there no way you can solve this issue without recompiling the kernel... I installed Debian Etch 4.0 r1 and got the same problem.
Although windoes works fine with it but the Debian OS just refuses to start up.. it fails to detect some devices and repeatedly gives the same message..
hdc: lost interrupt
Hope i am not hijacking a thread or something like that.. i think this is exactly the issue in this thread, right?
I needed to know what's the reason of this problem and is there an alternate solution to it instead of recompiling the kernel as philetus did..?
Also, @philetus, by switching the IDE support, do you mean you tweaked some of the BIOS settings?
Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot.
