Well it turns out that neither will! Apparently the only 2940 supported is
the UW-OF (Open Firmware) and even this one seems to have no drivers
beyond 2.6 (at least from Adaptec).

Thanks to 

  Timoty Lorenc that suggested getting a Symbios Logic (SYM8751SP).
		Checking on this one shows that it should be supported
		out of the box, no extra drivers. I'm getting a used one
		.... will see.
  Russ Poffenberger suggested checking the sun website (
		    for supported 3rd party cards.
