You'll need to verify that there is PortMultiplier support in the centos 
libata code.  Since the libata developers have it marked as 
experimental, I doubt it is in Centos.  I plan on using the SC-SATA12RM 
with internal sata to external sas converters with promise tx4 controllers.

I was going to use a LSI logic PCI-X controller, but my servers don't 
have 3.3 volt PCI-X slots. :(.
