Adaptec 1200A RAID and Mandrake 9.2 problem with install

1) Attempting to install 9.2 onto a RAID 1 adaptec 1200a hard disk configuration.
2) Receive error message: "swapon (ataraid/d0p5) failed: Device/Resource Busy" when I attempt to format the partitions set up during the install process.

3)have also attempted to place the swap partition on a not RAID drive that is also installed but same error message

4) Hardware: Precision Dell 210 workstation, Adapter 1200A RAID card 2 x 60GB Maxtor hard disc (new) set up prior as RAID 1 (mirrored) configuration.

4) Questions: How can I diagnose what is causing the problem?
I am using the default driver in the Mabndrake 9.2 . Should I be using a new driver?
