A visit at http://amd64.debian.net/debian-installer/daily/
revealed builds date april 8th.
AFAIK there is _no_ 20060517 AMD64 d-i build

The lsilogic page mentions:

 * Supported by Fusion MPT drivers with full operating system support:
    * Windows(R) 2000, XP, Server 2003
    * Linux(TM)
    * Solaris SPARC
    * SCO - UnixWare(TM) and Open Server
    * Novell(R) NetWare(R)

I have no clue how much freedom there is that driver,
if I understand it correct, then it is a "MPT card", that should work.

I suggest that you help / support making daily AMD64 d-i builds
now you have an installed AMD64.

Thank you for reporting the PCI ID of the card.
