There might be a 1.3.x kernel boot disk on the cdrom, otherwise, your
out of luck, I have an AHA-2940U and it took about a month to find the
disk on an ftp site so I could load it onto my drive, and at that stage
I had nothing but trouble, because it was an experimental kernel, and I
had no idea, but I don't have it anymore, and it doesn't seem to exist
on the site, so you might be out of luck.
