Disclaimer: I used these cards in Linux about 2 years ago - I've  
since switched the system over to FreeBSD which has better disk  
encryption support..

With that in mind, I don't remember using any special drivers.  I  
would have been using woody though - as the system was using  
"testing".  Definately a 2.4 kernel, with the CryptoAPI/International  
patches (used to be at kerneli.org).   I know 3ware provides some  
kernel drivers, but I don't remember using them, just the plain old  
kernel with encrypted file system support enabled.
