Promise 20376 RAID controller and kernel 2.6

I am wandering if anyone had success making the promise PDC20376 controller with a SATA hard drive working under kernel 2.6. I tried under kernel 2.6.1, 2.6.1-mm4, 2.6.2-rc2 without any succes I get a VFS kernel panic saying it cannot mount root partition unknown-block(8,6). If anyone got i working could you help me selecting the right configuration options or lilo or grub boot parameters.

looks like we are struggling with the same problem. a full detail of my system and configs can be found here: gentoo-forum

have you gotten any further? i'm "running" (read: "would like to run") kernel-2.6.3 and the problem remains. so the problem might hide somewhere else?!
