I don't want to use 4.01 because I'm using dual Xeons and I have read it's not 
stable with an SMP kernel (yet). Hoping 4.1 (FC2) with kernel 2.6 will be 
stable with SMP. I know Jim M. is intending on releasing it this month.

I'm intending on installing 3.1.2 in expert (dd) mode and install the scsi 
controller driver via (DUD) Driver Update Disk found here


during installation. Just not sure which version of driver I should use.
1.3.11 or 2.0.10

**BTW I have never used a Driver Update Disk during installation before. 
Hoping it's easy**

Anyone with experience?
