The ich6 is one of the first chips to support the AHCI inteface which is 
sortof what Promise and others have had for some time in "proprietary" 
That said, IIRC the ich6 has a compatibility mode where it will work as 
just a good old ich controller, so adding the PCI id's should do it.

any ich6 HW (E NO HW :) )..
