Nope, libata Promise driver only supports Serial ATA.

Bummer. Will it ever support PATA?

Is the Promise RAID support noticably faster than using md and a dumb ATA/133 controller?

I'm trying to decide now if I should get a couple SATA<>PATA convertors, or just get a dumb ATA/133 controller and go that way with md.
