I would be very interested in this driver install disk. I am about to
install a RH-8.0 server at a school that would like for me to use this RAID
card. Based on the readme.txt file included with the driver source code, it
looks like the standard 2.4.x linux kernel does not properly identify this
card. So it would be nice if I could specify this driver during the install
phase of RH-8.0. i.e. prior to running fdisk.

Thanks
