so long as I'm not smoking something, you won't be able to get SRM to
recognise that card.  The firmware is too old (or the card's too new) and
there are no updates anymore.  can't help with the kernel issue though ...
random hint, the only cards you need srm support for a scsi cards that you
are booting from.  once you're booted, linux uses its own drivers.
