Can anyone help with this install?  Installed the driver for kernel 2.4.20-8, which is on Promise.com with no luck any suggestions?  My original install of linux9 kernel is 2.4.20-6...searching RH could not find 2.4.20-8.  Is there a driver for 2.4-20-20..9?  Any suggestions how i can get 2.4.20-8?  Ideas?  Thank you!  Help!

be warned the fast trak RAID drivers are really no good.

The fastrak series actually offloads the RAID to the CPU, having the driver do the RAID through the CPU - making them slower, and in no better then software raid (sometimes worse!)

Having said that, the answer is no - there are no drivers for the 2.4 kernels that I was aware of when I first learned that my fastrak had to go.
