Are you saying that drivers/ide is binding to the NVIDIA SATA controller? That seems odd, at least in the Fedora Core 5 kernel configuration, drivers/ide would never try to bind to the SATA controllers for me, only sata_nv would. Maybe you have some configuration option turned on to make drivers/ide grab anything that looks like an IDE controller, which probably shouldn't be turned on.
