I recently wrestled with a SX6000 card, but was unable to get it to work
properly. Your best bet is to return the card and get a 3ware 7500-4.
If that's not an option, make sure that the card's BIOS is the latest
version. In the BIOS setup, set the OS support to "Other OS".
If you're using kernel 2.4.20 or higher, it may detect the card as a I2O
device and work.
