We have QLA2200 cards running under Debian with 2.4 kernels.  We don't
use the qlogic kernel module, because we were never able to get it
working properly; instead, we're using the isp_mod module.  If you have
any trouble finding the source for it, let me know and I can dig around
for the details.

The vendor of our fibre channel array only supports Red Hat on the Linux
side, with a specific kernel of their choosing, so we have to keep that
kernel around for diagnostic purposes -- but we're using only Debian in
