PDC20376 PATA?

Hello everybody::

I have got a problem getting my onboard FastTrak 376 Controller to work. The motherboard is an Asus A7V8X.

Kernels 2.6.1 to 2.6.5 do detect the controller, but not the harddisk connected to it.
During bootup of 2.6.5 stock kernel I get the following:

libata version 1.02 loaded.
sata_promise version 0.91
ata1: SATA max UDMA/133 cmd 0xE0A5F200 ctl 0xE0A5F238 bmdma 0x0 irq 10
ata2: SATA max UDMA/133 cmd 0xE0A5F280 ctl 0xE0A5F2B8 bmdma 0x0 irq 10
ata1: no device found (phy stat 00000000)
ata1: thread exiting
scsi0 : sata_promise
ata2: no device found (phy stat 00000000)
ata2: thread exiting
scsi1 : sata_promise

I assume it is only trying to detect SATA devices while my HDD is connected as PATA.. With Windows it works like a charm.

Do I have to pass some parameters to sata_promise or are there any patches to try for the PATA HDD to work?
