I've found the LSI driver disk at,
and have managed to do an install using the prebuilt driver disks and the 
install media, but after rebooting into the system, I get a kernel panic, 
with unresolved symbols aplenty.
 I could possibly build my own driver disk if I knew the PCI IDs (LSI have 
the source released, bless 'em). Are they documented anywhere? I could look 
into making a DKMS package if I get this sorted.
 I'd run RHEL2.1, but a combination of having to justify moving to 
management, and hubris means I'll be trying 7.2 for a while yet :)
