  2. Download VMware ESXI 5.0 source from http://downloads.vmware.com/d/details/vsphere_50_oss/dHRAYnRocGRiZHAlJQ==
  3. Extract contents of source package, and extract the contents of the vmkdrivers-gpl.tar.gz
  4. Copy the files from the cloned working copy into the extracted vmkdrivers-gpl folder
  5. run build-vmkdrivers-pata_jmicron.sh
  6. Compress the contents of the package folder where the built driver is placed
  7. Use http://www.v-front.de/p/esxi5-community-packaging-tools.html to create a VIB containing the driver
