You are one of many trying to get RHEL4/CentOS4/FC3+ onto machines with 
this RAID controller breed.  I am one of several people attempting to 
produce a viable driver disk that will enable us to install onto these 
machines.  Unfortunately, this is my first-ever attempt at doing so, and 
I am met only with challenges and brick-walls.

I am happy to share with you everything I have learned in this effort, 
although my solution doesn't yet work.  I wish I had better news, but it 
seems that those who know how to make this work aren't interested in 
sharing a solid, complete, working solution with everyone else on a "for 
newbies to kernel drivers" level.

When I actually get this to work, I assure you that I will publish the 
full procedure.
