Fibre 1GB Card needed for Compaq Proliant PL1600r P3

I have a Compaq Proliant PL1600r P3, running Red Hat 9, and need to get a Fibre 1GB network card to connect to a Brocaid Switch and to our HITACHI disk array. Does anyone know if this server supports a 1GB Fibre NIC and what Part Number would that card be?
Thanks in advance.

The FCA2101 (LP952) should work in this server. This card will install in either a 3.3v or 5v slot.

The HBA info provided earlier (64bit, 66mhz)will only work in an arbitrated loop and not a switched fabric.
The truth is out there, but I forgot the URL..
