Better than that, download a kernel source, change the default driver for this
one and compile the custom kernel. I tried to compile the driver separately, but
it didn't work, even after rebuild the RAMdisk, always got kernel panics at boot.

BTW, what version of the megaraid driver did you download? I advice you to try
the 2.00.7 (patched for 2.4 kernels), it works a lot faster (aprox twice) than 1.18.
