When using insmod megaraid.o it seems to recognize (1 host found). But when
I get to the part where it looks for local hard drives it poops out.
I read someplace that you would have to load the megaraid driver first,
before the scsi cdrom, however when trying this, it also doesn't like it.
Which makes me think that it might be possible that it isn't a AMI card, or
I'm doing something wierd...

*Most* of the Dell PowerEdge RAID Controller (PERC) cards are rebadged
AMI MegaRAID cards - you need to install the 'megaraid' module. The
onboard SCSI controllers are an Adaptec 7890 (the hard disk controller)
and an Adaptec 7880 (the CDROM) - the 'aic7xxx' SCSI module should take
care of these.
