Actually, no.  You are really using the IDE driver ("hda") for your disk
on the 2.6.23 kernel.

You can fix this by just not including the IDE driver in your kernel build,
and by fixing your /boot/grub/menu.lst file to use root=/dev/sda6
instead of root=/dev/hda6.

Plus whatever special soup gentoo might require.


I opened a thread[1] on gentoo-forums (the distro I use) with all the
output i think can be interesting.

Hope you can help me guys. Thanks for all :)
