I posted on this a while back, but didn't get any replies.

The OMSA driver won't compile under Linux-2.6.

Megamon will monitor a AMI based RAID controller.  This talks directly 
to the open source driver, so it should work under 2.6.  It used to work 
for me under 2.6.3, but doesn't seem to notice anything under 2.6.5.

There is different tool for Adaptec based RAID.  I haven't used that 
one.  It should also be independent of OMSA.
