If it isn't...

I'm assuming that the onboard four-port Promise controller is also
connected to the PCI bus. In which case, it might be possible to get it
detected after the on-board one by changing which PCI slot the two port
card is in.

In any case, I shouldn't worry about it too much. The device names
aren't particularly user-visible.

Have you manually specified any kernel parameters?

Hope this helps,

James.
