Adaptec 1200A How to get it to work correctly.


New server box build with tyan i7501 pro (NO onboard scsi unfortunately)

Installed FC4 today on a single hd, with the card installed (but no drives). Got it running. Then dropped in the Adaptec 1200a raid card and the exact drives that were in my old win2k server. Storage drives, nothing to do with the Linux OS. The bios properly recognizes the card and the drives are mirrored correctly, named correctly, looks great. Linux boots and I see some thing like "volume grouping"

however the drives don't show up on the desktop correctly. I can't just access them. The hardware browser is calling the drives hde and hdg (like they were two different drives), but ntfs formated, with the correct size partition, etc.

Any ideas how to straighten it out. Do i need some sort of driver, or something?

P.S. I just broke the raid, and hooked one of the mirrored drives to the IDE on the Mobo. I can't see that drive on the desktop either. I think I need to fix this problem and then check the raid issue. any ideas?
