I believe most Promise hardware is supported.
I use a "Promise PDC20378 SATA150 controller" built into my motherboard for 
RAID1 and it works perfectly.

The only problem can be mapping the name to the PDC number although you should 
be able to find it if you dig in the data sheet.

I believe the chip I am using is in the "FastTrak S150 TX2plus" - it has 2 
SATA ports and a PATA port (which matches the motherboard)
