Of course I could not do an lspci with the installer, as it is not present
(why, it would be so useful), so I used Knoppix instead.
The raid card is:
1044:a511 RAID controller Adaptec (formerly DPT) SmartRAID V Controller
and the network cards:-
14e4:1640 Broadcom NetXtreme BCM5704.
With your driver in exprt mode it correctly identified the cards and the
drivers that were needed for them, but said they could not be loaded.
