Here is the link to the repoview page for the 2950 & rhel 5 64:

Don't know if it's megaraid_sas or mptlinux. There is hardware discovery for firmware update, don't know about drivers. If you use the System Management Tools and Documentation (SMTD) dvd to deploy your OS, it will install all the dell drivers you need for your hardware.
