I don't think any of the Marvell Sata controllers worked reliably
prior to the 2.6.17 kernel. 2.6.17 still has Marvell marked highly
experimental, but the maintainer (Mark Lord) has said that the 2.6.17
Marvell driver is major step forward.

And if you don't know SUSE 10.1 is based on a 2.6.16 kernel, so I'm
afraid you are working with basically unsupported hardware.
