Like Martin said, you can't use a driver compiled for Red Hat's kernel
with the XFS kernel (more generally, you can't use reliably use drivers
across kernel versions, in most cases.)
On the other hand, we have a newer kernel than in the original Red Hat
7.1 release - perhaps your issue has been resolved in this kernel. Have
you tried installing without using any driver disk?
