http://ubuntuforums.org – This is to explain the simplest way to get the Highpoint RocketRAID 2640x4 RAID controller card to work with Ubuntu. I will get to the problems I faced later, let me just say that it is a sad state of affairs when you have to recommend others NOT to use the driver installer that is posted on the manufacturers web site. Building the driver on your system means no worries about the kernel version not matching the driver. I chose Ubuntu 10.04 because it is the most recent long term support version.
