Not sure. I can't find it in the official kernel 2.4.23 (www.kernel.org),
or I am looking over it. What I can find is a driver with the same module


This driver supports the AMI MegaRAID 418, 428, 438, 466, 762, 490,
467, 471 and 493 SCSI host adapters.

This is the old and very heavily tested driver but lacks features
like clustering.

If you want to compile this driver as a module ( = code which can be
inserted in and removed from the running kernel whenever you want),
say M here and read Documentation/modules.txt.  The module
will be called megaraid.o.


Either this module is compatible with your mega raid, or suse and rh gave
a very poor name.

I have looked to the kernel patches, but I could not find information
about CONFIG_SCSI_MEGARAID, so I assume it is disabled by default.

If you don't need to boot from your controller, you can compile the module
afterwards, otherwise a module isn't good enough and you should compile
your custom kernel before installation.

The software box said 'Requires Windows 95 or better', so I installed Linux.
