So you're using/need VIA options: CONFIG_BLK_DEV_VIA82CXXX=y (in 2.4). I'm
also using that northbridge chipset.

On my Debian sid machine, I do: `grep VIA
/boot/config-2.4.9-ac12`. Basically grep for "CONFIG_BLK_DEV_VIA82CXXX" in
your kernel .config file. I believe most modern distros put it in /boot .
