adaptec 2610sa raid support in debian-installer (aacraid)


I'm hoping to install sarge on an HP box with one adaptec 2610sa raid controller, but the latest debian-installer's aacraid module doesn't recognize the 2610sa. The 2410sa, 2810sa and 21610sa are mentioned as being supported on adaptec's site (and linit.c suggests same - see below). Is there some reason why the 2610sa hasn't been included (and is there any chance of a non-hacker like myself ever getting this to work reliably)?

There also seems to be a later version of aacraid (1.1.5-2391). adaptec's website is serving up version 1.1.5-2326 however 1.1.5-2391 has been used to build a set of driver disk images (also on adaptec's site) and it seems some pay-licensed linux distributions have 2610sa support using 2391. Anyone know where I could get the source for aacraid 1.1.5-2391 (note: the aacraid with the 2.6.8 kernel source has the same three lines below and makes no reference to the 2610sa)?

thanks for any help,
