at the time bo was released, the options for the kernel were 2.0.29 and
2.0.30. as 2.0.30 turned out to be unstable on some machines, debian
decided to use the 2.0.29 kernel. the only problem is :
buslogic flashpoint support started with 2.0.30 :-(

i wrote a mail about that topic about 5 months ago (maybe i even filed a
bug report, i don't remember).

get a 2.0.32 kernel, compile it and it will work !
in the worst case, i can compile a kernel for you.
