How to load a Sunix/Initio Sata card on Solaris10/x86

Hi All,

Anyone has configured a Sunix Sata S150 card (AKA Initio Inic-1622) + disk in a Solaris10/x86 05/09 system? I wondered what to do to get it running. The Sunix card does not come with a Solaris driver ;-(

The card is seen by the system as the prtconf -v output shows (see below at the pci1101,1622 entry), but how do I configure it to see the disk attached to it? Would any ordinary sata driver be sufficient?

I tried modload marvell88sx to see whether this driver would catch it, but no way.

In WindowsXP it works fine with the driver supplied.

Sorry for the advanced that may know the solution at once: I am a relative newbie to driver configs in Solaris.
