I wish I could, but I couldn't make mine work either (toffee). In the
end I built a kernel locally with support for the hardware built in
directly. This also includes a patch to turn down the over-aggressive
UDMA for the cats' IDE controller that was causing data corruption in
2.6.18 (#419482).

I can give you working binaries if you want - just ask.
