I found some drivers on LSI website, they are under GPL. Look very similar to
those in vanilla kernel 2.6.21. Just there are two additional files csmisas.c
and csmisas.h.

Did you try expert install? There has to be an option to choose which kernel to
install. Otherwise, newer version of Lenny may work (I guess you tried with beta2).

Did you try hardware raid? Did Lenny recognize raid array as a single device?
Did you install it on raid device?
