SATA fails on Centos 4.8 guest

SATA does not work on Centos 4.8 guests .... kernel fails to ID and mount the drives - no panic, but definitely a driver failure.
Same exact configuration under Centos 5 works fine.
Reproducible using LiveCD isos and/or install CDs (boot into rescue mode).
Setup is easy - create a redhat vbox, assign 1 hdd to the SATA controller, and boot the appropriate CD. 4 will crash during boot.
See attached picture for an attempt mounting some SATA drives using the Centos 4.8 boot CD
vbox log files should not be necessary since this is such a basic failure, but will be provided if requested.
