[K12OSN] HP Pavillion a1600n

We're trying to install onto an HP Pavillion a1600n that has a SATA drive.  The 
installation went okay, but booting is failing.  Specifically, GRUB runs, the kernel 
loads, and I think the initrd file loads and during that stage it's hanging in the 
process of detecting or talking to the IDE bus (I'm offsite, and this is what the tech 
there is telling me).  If I'm getting the correct information, it sounds like the system 
is talking to the SATA bus and drive, but hanging on some other piece; but SATA drives 
in HP/Compaqs have given me trouble before.  Anyone run into this or have any suggestions?
