You can also use the '-d ata' switch to smartctl to get it to work with 
SATA devices.  To wit:

> [root at jaybird ~]# smartctl -H /dev/sda

Now the same command with the '-d ata' switch:

> [root at jaybird ~]# smartctl -H -d ata /dev/sda
> smartctl version 5.33 [i686-redhat-linux-gnu] Copyright (C) 2002-4 Bruce Allen

I picked this up from a thread a while back on this list.

Hope that helps!
