 Adding a module when I've only got the binary

You're right, I was talking about the percraid.o driver but the person
who said use aacraid.o instead is also right.

The story is, RedHat have written the aacraid driver which is an open
source replacement for the percraid.o driver. If you go to their site
and select any kernel source from 2.2.16 upwards, it will be included.

Regarding binary modules, if the version of the kernel you're running
is exactly the same as the kernel the binary was compiled against,
there shouldn't be a problem. Otherwise you do an insmod -f and hope
for the best.

For future reference I summarised what I found out at
