Redhat 7.2 on the LSI u320 (PE1750)

I'm trying to install Redhat 7.2 on a Poweredge 1750 without a PERC/4 
controller (i.e. just the scsi backplane, one disk). The 1650 had a nice 
bog-standard aic7xxx backplane, AFAIR, but this new controller is giving me 
some trouble. I've been told the megaraid driver may work with this 
controller, but am not sure if it will, since it's not a RAID controller as 

I've managed to get the 1.18f megaraid driver to compile on the stock 7.2 
kernel (2.4.7-10), and am building a driver floppy (not having done this 
before, I'm working off various bit of HOWTOs.). Is there a place where I 
can get the PCI IDs of this controller (for adding to the 'pcitable' file 
on the floppy)? Or am I going the right way about this at all?

Any pointers on this much appreciated.
