SubjectRE: PERCRAID 3 drivers?
Date
The aacraid driver was submitted to Alan Cox, but rejected because it has
too many "NTism's" in it, which are being addressed. Please see the Red Hat
Linux "Pinstripe" beta kernel source RPM for the source code, or contact me
privately.

Sincerely,
Matt Domsch
Dell Enterprise Systems Group
Linux Development Team
