Get the version for kernel 2.4 from:

ftp://ftp.lsil.com/pub/linux-megaraid/drivers/version-2.00.7/megaraid2-v.2.00.7.tgz

Put in drivers/scsi directory of the kernel sources and compile it using the
Makefile of the kernel:

make modules SUBDIRS=drivers/scsi

Then rebuild the ramdisk and try. However, I've tested both 1.18j and 2.00.7
drivers, and 1.18j run faster than 2.00.7 in my PE 1400SC (at least hdparm says
so), besides is the brach included in 2.4 kernel by RH.
