To answer one of my questions myself: I just found the RedHat Sysadm Rescue CD
and it contains a megaraid driver with version 1.18d which works just fine. The
CD can be found at

	ftp://ftp.redhat.de/pub/rh-addons/rescue-cd/

The stock megaraid.c in the 2.4.20 kernel is version 1.18 and that is not
enough, according to Matt Dormsch's pages, it has to be 1.18a or above. Knoppix
is a plain 2.4.20 kernel, hence it can not find the ROMB on the PE2600. QED.

Remains to see what ideas you have on backup schemes.

Cheers!
