10 I had a similar problem when I got my current machine last summer.
11 here's how to solve it...
13 1) boot from the Gentoo CD
15 2) execute "lsmod". This lists all the modules that the kernel has
16 loaded. One of them is running the drive. If you get desparate, build
17 each module into your kernel, one at a time, until you find what works.
19 3) execute "lspci -v". The listing *FOR THE DRIVE* (as well as the
20 controller) may show what module it wants. Compile that into the
21 kernel.
