Does it have a SAS 6/ir controller? Or a PERC variant?
The former is software-assist and the driver is brand new.
Remember, Dell and LSI would club a baby seal over the head to save a buck.
That driver is in 8.2 but you'll need to get us a copy of the DMESG from
your CD boot. If you cant get the network to come up from the FixIt
image, try copy'ing /var/run/dmesg to a thumb drive and sneaker-net it.
Post the dmesg to http://www.nycbug.org/index.php?NAV=dmesgd;SQLIMIT=20
