Port Multiplier with Sil3132 and Sil4726

I am currently trying to get a 5 drive "Venus T5" enclosure, which
uses an Sil4726 Storage Processor, connected to my system which uses a Sil3132 SATA Host Controller. Everything I've read
indicates that this should work, but it never connects, none of
the drives get initialized and mapped in.

I'm running Fedora 10 with kernel-2.6.27.21-170.2.56.fc10.


When the external controller is powered up I get...

ata8: exception Emask 0x10 SAct 0x0 SErr 0x0 action 0xe frozen
ata8: irq_stat 0x00b40090, PHY RDY changed
ata8: hard resetting link

ata8.06: hard resetting link
ata8.06: SATA link down (SStatus 0 SControl 320)
ata8.05: unsupported device, disabling
ata8.05: disabled

And if I hit the reconnect button on the external box I get...

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank You.
