I've done it but under Solaris 10.  I basically followed the  
instructions that Areca has in the docs/website.  My card was an 1120  
8 port card (I also did an 1130 12 port card through its in-built  
ethernet port).

I went just now to their downloads and they only show the 32 bit  
archttp server.  Try that and see how it works since your amd should  
also run 32 bit programs, right?.  Otherwise, maybe you will have to  
boot a liveCD in 32bit mode or something and run it from that
