Hello!

>> I guess you mean PDC20378?
>> That controller is supported by the latest 2.6.17.x+ Kernels.

Just for the records:

linux-2.6.18 does not support the PATA of the PDC20775 (Promise SATA II 300 TX2plus)
yet. This Controller is a 1xPATA and 2xSATA combo PCI card.

The SATA works right out of the box, but for PATA you need to apply the
following patch:

Best greets,
