Problem with CA's Disaster recovery

Ok, got my hands around it some.  I installed dkms on my development box, 
which is running SuSE 9.  However, under the /usr/src, I see the following 
kernel versions:

drwxr-xr-x   3 root root 4096 Sep  2  2006 linux-2.6.5-7.147
drwxr-xr-x   3 root root 4096 Sep  2  2006 linux-2.6.5-7.151
drwxr-xr-x   3 root root 4096 Sep  2  2006 linux-2.6.5-7.155.29
drwxr-xr-x   3 root root 4096 Sep  2  2006 linux-2.6.5-7.191
drwxr-xr-x   3 root root 4096 Sep  2  2006 linux-2.6.5-7.193
drwxr-xr-x   3 root root 4096 Sep  2  2006 linux-2.6.5-7.201
drwxr-xr-x   3 root root 4096 Sep  2  2006 linux-2.6.5-7.202.7
drwxr-xr-x   3 root root 4096 Sep  3  2006 linux-2.6.5-7.244
drwxr-xr-x   3 root root 4096 Sep  4  2006 linux-2.6.5-7.252
drwxr-xr-x   3 root root 4096 Sep  4  2006 linux-2.6.5-7.257
drwxr-xr-x   3 root root 4096 Sep  4  2006 linux-2.6.5-7.267
drwxr-xr-x  20 root root 4096 Sep  4  2006 linux-2.6.5-7.276
drwxr-xr-x   3 root root 4096 Jul 24  2006 linux-2.6.5-7.276-obj

Note that kernel 2.6.5-7.139 isnt on the list.  Do I need to build a SuSE9 
SP1 server, or is there a place that I could pull down the necessary 
kernel source directory and place it on this server?

kernel 2.6.5-7.139-default is from Novell/SuSE Linux Enterprise Server
9, Service Pack 1.  So, you *should* be able to use the megaraid_sas
driver source from here:
ftp://ftp.dell.com/sas-raid/megaraid_sas-00.00.03.09-1.tgz
which contains the driver, and prebuilt modules for SLES9 SP3 in DKMS
format.  You grab the kernel-source files from SLES9 SP1 and have DKMS
rebuild the driver for you against that kernel.  The
megaraid_sas-v00.00.03.09-src.tgz file included inside the above .tgz
looks like it even has a SLES9 SP1-specific patch, which should make
it possible to build the driver with DKMS quite easily.

Hope this gives you enough pointers to get started.

Thanks,
Matt
