I have the same board, and the promise controller is NOT supported by
2.6.8. It is supported in 2.6.12 so you can either use the 2.6.12 based
installer that I maintain for sarge amd64, or you can install using the
via sata controller and upgrade the kernel and then use the promise
If you want to try that look here:
It is the actual board I used to develop my updated version of the
installer using a WD SATA drive on the promise controller.
I do not remember if I had to manually (from console 2) modprobe
sata_promise before detecting the disk. With a number of new
controllers you have to (since I didn't update the discover data yet)
