Kernel config and SATA woes

When I boot from the LiveCD 2006.1, I see that it loads modules libata, ata_piix, and sata_mv.
I can certainly mount my desired / partition and chroot to it at will.
However, I cannot use genkernel to create a bootable system. I'm getting errors that suggest I haven't got the right hardware drivers to mount /.
My basic question: is there any place that shows clearly a mapping between all kernel modules and the kernel configuration parameters? One could become passionate about the easter-egg hunt here...
