Install on HW-RAID fails to see full drivespace

I have a supported 3-Ware raid card with 10x1TB drives in a Raid-6 with hot-spare, so I have ~6.5TB of useable space.

Unfortunately, during the install, fdisk-l shows only in a tenth of what's truly available.

Did I hose something up during the RAID configuration?

sounds like your RAID driver is not configured correctly. What does your RAID BIOS show when you go into the configuration?
what type of server/card?
type of disks?
