Ah, the kernel is too old. The driver was first included in 2.6.30.
I think that the easiest way to get a newer kernel is to upgrade to
Ubuntu 9.10; in alternative you can try a packaged mainline kernel:
http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/

but this might break other things (so be sure to keep the old working
kernel installed when trying a package from the PPA).
