Adaptec 1210sa RAID not seen

I completly new to Linux. I've installed Red Hat 8 with no problems. Added adaptec 1210sa card and installed the drivers from adaptec. The adaptec storage manager sess the drives and I've created a RAID 1 array. I can't see how to mount the the drive, if this is what i need to do.? Where am I going wrong . Should the drive appear listed when I type mount? "listpci -v" shows the adaptec card is installed.

I'm at a loss. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

Disclaimer: my 1210SA is not in a RAID configuration, so this information may not be helpful or apply.

I don't know if you ever got an answer on this, but after installing the drive and the drivers, the drive should be /dev/sda (Scsi Disk A). You can mount this drive, assuming you had a formatted partition on it, like this:

mount -t ext3 /dev/sda1 /new_mount_point

Use fdisk and mkfs to partition and format the drive. Another alternative is to re-install on the drives. Adaptec now has RH9 drivers, which is a better version than RH8 for desktop use.
