If the scsi-controller has picked them up, and
the scsi-storage module is loaded, a fdisk -l
should reveal them...

I get this when I try that:

[thaidog@localhost thaidog]$ fdisk -i
bash: fdisk: command not found
[thaidog@localhost thaidog]$ su
Password:
[root@localhost thaidog]# fdisk -i
bash: fdisk: command not found
[root@localhost thaidog]# fdisk -l
bash: fdisk: command not found
[root@localhost thaidog]#

Try
a) as root
or
b) with the full path, e.g. /sbin/fdisk -l
