    Yes, and hopefully it will have support for the Backpack drive you
    have. If it's a fairly recent drive, though, the chances are that it
    won't help. The new Micro-Solutions driver will work, although it
    didn't make it into the Red Hat Linux kernel in time for the 7.1
    release. I'll look at making a driver disk that includes the
    Micro-Solutions driver, and post an announcement here.
