In that time frame, SuSE wasn't including the aacraid driver in their kernel
(no one was).

Basically, yes.  The driver source is on,
though you may want to try to make the later patch apply to the 2.2.16
kernel.  We haven't done development/backport of fixes from recent 2.4.x to
2.2.x though, so at least you'll need to patch aacid.c to have the latest
list of PCI ids for the 2550.  For a fee, I'm sure SuSE can assist.  Or,
consider running Red Hat Linux 7.1 or 7.2, which handles this device
