any further testing.

This is an IBM ServeRAID card (ServeRAID 8k-l to be precise). We don't have any ServeRAID support which, historically, has crippled our IBM support. The 3550 comes with the 8k-l already fitted and you can't remove it or you'll get a CPU failure message at boot time (though there was a rumour of BIOS fix for this).

We could do with ServeRAID support. I'd been willing to donate hardware and/or funds towards development.
