Trouble getting Slackware to recognize Hard Drives


Alright, well I've racked my brain and just not really sure where to problem is... I running slackware 8.1 and having a big problem setting up RAID, well actually the RAID part would be easy but for some reason cfdisk and fdisk don't recognize my hard drives set up...
I have three hard drives, one 100 GB, that has all of my program files on it which is connected to a standard IDE controller. I also have two 250 GB Maxtor HD's connected to a promise Raid controller, here I cut the lspci for it

02:06.0 RAID bus controller: Promise Technology, Inc. 20267 (rev 02)
Subsystem: Intel Corp.: Unknown device 4232
Control: I/O+ Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping- SERR- FastB2B-
Status: Cap+ 66Mhz- UDF- FastB2B- ParErr- DEVSEL=medium >TAbort- <TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR-
Latency: 32
Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 10
Region 0: I/O ports at dc00 [size=8]
Region 1: I/O ports at d880 [size=4]
Region 2: I/O ports at d800 [size=8]
Region 3: I/O ports at d480 [size=4]
Region 4: I/O ports at d400 [size=64]
Region 5: Memory at feac0000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=128K]
Expansion ROM at feab0000 [disabled] [size=64K]
Capabilities: [58] Power Management version 1
Flags: PMEClk- DSI- D1- D2- AuxCurrent=0mA PME(D0-,D1-,D2-,D3hot-,D3cold-)
Status: D0 PME-Enable- DSel=0 DScale=0 PME-

Anyway, the problem is that the two other hard drives simply are not being detected as can be seen from the dmesg.... (sorry it's long didn't know what to leave out so I included the whole thing...)

I really just don't understand why it won't read the Hard Disks so I can set up RAID... Any help would be greatly apprecaited

My guess would be that (especially with an older version of Slack . . . 8.1 must be about two years old by now) your kernel doesn't have the driver for the Promise RAID controller. You'll want to grab sources for a new kernel and compile your own (many guides online . . . Google). I distinctly remember seeing a section in Device Drivers for the Promise RAID controller. You'll want to enable that of course. Probably compile it right into the kernel.

[edit]:
I spoke too soon. Looks like you have the Promise controller in there, based on dmesg. You may still want to roll a new kernel, though, as the driver may be out of dat.e
