I'm posting this back to the list because I don't have any SATA drives
in my machine to noodle around with, and all the SATA raid machines I've
worked with worked out of the box, so I don't have any experience
troubleshooting them.

But let's give it a shot. Is this raid setup on the card itself, or in
hardware? The last machine I did had 3 discs striped on the card
itself. SUSE 9.0 and 9.1 both saw one big disc - /dev/sda

Maybe there are parameters you have to specify. Have a look in the
kernel source directory - there maybe something in the module source -
commented information on what options you could specify with it.

Also, have you tried using the "disc controllers" module in yast2?

Kind regards
