This is for reference for people trying to get these serial ATA cards
to load after my investigation into it.

I got things working on Redhat (well, Fedora Core 1) with recent
2.4/2.6 kernels without issue after adding the following line to
/etc/modules.conf:

alias scsi_hostadapter sata_promise

After that it worked great (except for that appearing as a scsi device
oddness). The issue just seemed to be one of not getting auotmatically
detected.

Hope this helps others,
Steve
