Hi Tony,

in fact, I also patched SATA drivers in the 2.4.26-om kernel. Yet I  
could so far not manage to
get the kernel working for my latest DELL PE1950 with a Perc 6i  
driver ... maybe the megaraid_sas
driver I use is outdated ...

I also search for LinuxPMI project information, but without any  
success. So I share your feeling that
this projects is probably dead ...
