Mega RAID Controller Card

It seems like a common hardware problem experienced.

I have a HP Proliant ML330 G3 server box and would like to load Linux Fedora Core 2 on it.
The last Linux RedHat version supported by HP for this box is RedHat 8.0
On the LSI Logic website support goes up to RedHat 9.0.
Needless to say that none of these drivers do work with Fedora Core 2.

On Linuxquestions I did find a couple of threads relating to problems experienced, but none with a solution. Or maybe I don't understand it correctly.

What I need to know is the following:
The easy way: has any person complied a megaide.o for the CSB6 IDE RAID or MegaRAID ATA 133-2 or MegaRAID IDE 100 on the Linux 2.6.5-1.358 Fedora Core 2 kernel?
The difficult way: I got some Driver Compilation Instructions and sources files "megaide-v5.08" from the supplier of this product. I have tried to compile the drivers but halfway through the document I get stuck. The document is for SCSI drivers and not IDE drivers.
The supplier has advised that this is where their support stop.

I need help desperately on the correct procedure to compile this driver correctly. But please I need detail descriptions. Don't see myself as a Linux boffin.
