Hi

The aacraid patch is included in the kernel-source package as of version 
2.2.19-7

But the debian maintainers says that they would prefer that the patch was
included in the officiall Linux kernel.

So it is not certain that the aacraid patch will bee included on the
woody boot disks.

Potato bootdisks can be downloaded from:
http://www.hem.net/doc/linux/pe2550_boot-floppies/

And the aacraid-enabled kernel can be downloaded from:
ftp://ftp.debian.org/pub/mirrors/debian/pool/main/k/kernel-source-2.2.19/kernel-source-2.2.19_2.2.19-7_all.deb

PS.
Whats the status of the 2.4.x series OpenManage Server Agent drivers?
Will the Debian users be able to use Hardware Monitoring on PowerEdge servers?
