You don't.  SATA is using scsi style interface now, and with Alan Cox's
current work, IDE drives soon will too.  It will all go through libata
and show up as scsi disks.

It will be nice to have everything nice and consistent (except for the
few oddball raid cards that insist on being completely different) for
accessing disks.

SATA is not IDE, so why expect it to show up as an old style IDE disk?
