Control Port Multiplier via SATA2 port built-in onboard


Dear!
I have a motherboard layout ICH7/ICH10 (South brigde). This mother board has 4 ports SATA2. And I have a Port Multiplier support SATA2.
I would like to build driver for control Port Multiplier via SATA2 port built-in on this motherboard.
--> Is this idea feasible?
Please give me advise about this issue.

For the case, it shouldn't work. Normally, the port multiplier communicate with CPU through PCI bus and extend multi SATA ports to connect SATA disk.
