Mandriva 2006 is a legacy distro - it will not well support newer hardware.
In your BIOS, you need to set the SATA controller to it's "legacy" or "ide" mode.
At the boot: prompt, you may need to pass "all-generic-ide" to the kernel.

Best practice is to use the latest Mandriva - 2008 - or similarly recent distro.
