[textile] Most of the folks using the Promise SuperTrack 6000 controller have found out that the "RedHat":http://www.redhat.com 9 modules don't really work well with later kerners because the versions are mismatching. Not a real wonder, and it isn't a bad thing neither. However, recompiling them takes quite some effort, but with a bit of fiddling around and hitting the compiler a few times, one can get it to run on 2.4 kernels (the 2.6 series is still a research subject).
