That was not my experience.  I did install the 9000 series card after
updating to the latest current for everything including the 2.6.8-1.521 and
FC2 dropped the 3w-xxxx driver into place which will not work.  I had to
compile my own driver under that kernel and then run the mkinitrd stuff.  In
speaking with 3ware support they confirmed that in kernel support is coming
for the 9000 in future kernel releases but is not there presently.
