Help with compiling aic79xx driver from adaptec

Hello Everyone,

I'm having problems with the latest FC5 kernel. I have been waiting for awhile for them to fix my problem. So I want to try adaptec version of the driver. I have never compiled a linux driver before so I need some help. I download the driver source from adaptec and unzipped it.
When I run make I get an error (make: *** No rule to make target `/aic7xxx_seq.h', needed by `/aic7xxx_core.o'.). Is there a package I need to compile modules with.

Look if that file (aic7xxx_seq.h) is in the driver archive. If not, try tunning 'make dep' before 'make'.
