On a PE2850 (Dual Xeon) I use Debian Sarge with a self-compiled 2.6.11
(sources from Debian Etch / SID) with the Debian-patches and no
additional modules. This one works really fine.

The Megaraid-modules (from the kernel) are included statically in the
kernel. Do you want the kernel .config-file?

Okay, I didn't test usb, since our machine has ps/2 ports...
