ok, redhat 9 uses version 1.02.00.031 of 3w-xxxx.c
I'm guessing bf24 does not use anything newer.
latest version of the driver is 1.02.00.036. I'm going to try that one
on a redhat 8 installation.
Assuming that is going to work, how would I be able to install woody
with a kernel that has this version of the 3ware drivers?
How to roll my own kernel (on an existing woody system) and somehow load
it while installing woody?
