Hi, aic94xx is not the same as adp94xx but very similar.

Unfortunately there are a few versions of the debian sarge installer cd,
so the precompiled version only works with one.
Just send me a private mail and we'll try to compile the driver together
for sarge.

About grml and adp94: adp94 was dropped in the meantime because it never
compiled for newer kernel versions and aic94 worked for most
controllers. In fact, you are the first one who reports, that it doesn't
work (Maybe you enabled RAID in the BIOS?)
I will check again if newer adp94 versions will compile with 2.6.21
kernel and I also will precompile modules for debian etch. But this will
take some time, especially as IBM now uses LSI controllers instead of
Adaptec so my new Servers don't need adp94xx any longer.
