Your other option would be to try the DAG software using compat5x port
under 6.2/3 or even 7. Depends how easy and cheap switching controllers
is relative to your time.
PERC 4(Di?) works fine in a 2850 under 5.4, but 5.4 is no longer
supported at all, so no security fixes, so you'd better keep the machine
