SATA software RAID woes with 2.6.8 debian

Hardware introduction:

Motherboard is a A7N8X-X with onboard Silicon Image 3112a controller chip.
/ is mounted from /dev/hda1
swap is mounted from /dev/hda3
/home is mounted from /dev/md/a1
/closet is mounted from /dev/md/a2
I have two 200GB SATA drives.

Before upgrading to the 2.6.8 kernel, the SATA drives were recognized as hde and hdg. This allowed the md driver to automatically assemble the drives on boot and then /home and /closet are mounted.

Now, after upgrading to 2.6.8, the SATA drives are no longer recognized as hde and hdg, but rather, sda and sdb, after the md module is loaded, so it is not automatically assembling the drives.

Everything works fine with
$ mdadm -A /dev/md/a /dev/sda1 /dev/sdb1
$ mount /home
$ mount /closet

But I'd rather not have to do this after every boot.

Any ideas?
