No, i2cdetect should work on any i2c bus that works.  It sounds like the
i2c-sis96x driver isn't recognizing your setup.

Yes; you can post without subscribing.  You've been doing this already.

Could you send the results of 'lspci -v' and 'lspci -n' on your system
while running 2.6.x?  Does the i2c-sis645 driver work for you with
kernel 2.4.x?  If so, please send both 'lspci' results while running
that also.
