Most likely it is a kernel support problem. I have been handling the g4l 
project, and ran into a similar problem. The older kernel would 
support some SATA configurations that later kernels would not support. 
Eventually working with the git kernels, I was able to get newer kernels that 
would once again support the controllers.

I do include udpcast as a receive option on the menu of G4L, since its 
compatible with images created by udpcast. There are copies of both the 
udp-sender and udp-reciever programs on the cd. You might want to boot 
from the g4l cd, and see if it recognizes the drives and controller.


After the in boot, you would select the latest kernel by endering 
That is the latest one on that image, thou I have another image that has two 
additional git kernels that came out after the 1/10/07.
After it loads and boots to the command prompt, you could check if it sees 
the drives.
cat /proc/partitions

I use the g4l to make the images on my ftp server, and then generally use 
the udpcast to image all the machines in my computer labs at the college.
