I think the best thing you can do is to upgrade your kernel. 2.6.5 is
more than 3 years old and the Poweredge 2950 is much more recent. Is
there a possibility to upgrade the entire distribution version? More
recent versions of Suse will support this controller without any
problems. You can also compile your own kernel, there is a lot of
information on how to this floating around on the internet.
