It's the 3w-xxxx kernel module.  It seems to be standard in the 2.4.x series
kernels, I didn't have to do any compiling to get it to work.  I don't know
what kernel the SuSE distros use though.

The 7410 works nicely.  I only planned to do RAID1, so I didn't go for the
extra cache 7450.  The only thing I don't like about it so far is the RAID
manager tool that you get from 3ware has a really terribly installation script
(let's figure out which distro I'm running on based on the kernel version I'm
running... yeah! <G>)  So I haven't installed it yet.  It's also looking like
they only have a GUI tool, which means it'll be difficult getting a monitor
setup to watch for failed disks. :(
