I have read somewhere, that the adaptec driver to that controller works only with Centos 5.4, but i need a newer version of Centos. Maybe using drivers from RHEL 5 / 6 would be a better solution here?

binary drivers are *very* kernel version specific.

you could install centos 5.4 with those drivers, then yum update 
everything *but* the kernel
