I have not found it required that the kernel needs replacing.  I've run
the latest megamgr from LSI on RHL 8.0, RHL 9, FC1, and RHEL 3 ES
"stock" kernels with no trouble (it even has a couple of extra status
options that the RAID BIOS manager doesn't have).

On the subject of megaraid though: what is the difference between the
megaraid and megaraid2 drivers?  RH picks megaraid by default, but is
there some reason I'd want to switch?

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
