fibre channel question

I have installed 2 FC qlogic cards into a machine running 2xopterons and hardware raid1 ultra320 scsi disks. The scis is shown to trhe system as just one disk. the kernel is 2.6.13 and has both the LSI(scsi raid controller) and the qlogic drivers compiled in statically. When I boot the system with the two FCs connected to my san... i can see the disks that are presented while the machine boots but i think becuase it detects the FCs first it assignes them sda in /dev which was hte original SCSI boot drive and so can get past boot.

I've googled for similar problems and they all revolve around loading the modules in a different order at boot time. But what shuild i do if ive compiled the drivers into kernel statically?

Don't compile them in statically, there's no way you can fix the problem without mucking with the order in which the kernel starts the drivers anyway so the best fix is to just run a modular kernel, like you should anyway.
