I have a Promise SATAII 150 TX4 controller which I belive is somewhat
similar to your controller. And judging from
the two controllers use the same driver.

My controller wasn't supported by the first CentOS 4 (4.0) release, but
with CentOS 4.1, things work fine out of the box, with no need to try to
install special vendor drivers.

By the way: The driver (kernel module) is called "sata_promise" on my

Have you tried simply forgetting about the vendor's driver files, and just
install CentOS 4.1, perhaps telling it to use the "sata_promise" driver,
if manual intervention is needed?
