You'll need to create a file system on the array then specify its mount point on /etc/fstab. For big file systems I would recommend either reiserfs or xfs (it's up to you), remember that you may need to modify your intial ramdisk again.
mkfs -t (xfs|reiserfs|ext3) /dev/sdb
create a partition (or several partitions) on /dev/sdb
mkfs -t (xfs|reiserfs|ext3) /dev/sdb1
The add the following line to fstab
/dev/sdb /mountpoint xfs|reiserfs|ext3 defaults 1 1
/dev/sdb1 /mountpoint xfs|reiserfs|ext3 defaults 1 1
/mountpoint can be any folder, /home is a good options unless your /home is already full of stuff)
For sharing the obvious choice is samba. Just add a share in smb.conf for the /mountpoint and you'll be ready to go.

And this initial ramdisk is really used and not the older one with the other
3ware module? I ask because /boo/initrd/ is not a default path that Fedora
uses. It works but you have to be sure the path to the initrd.img file in
the grub.conf matches this path. The default path - used in /etc/grub.conf -
I made the ramdisk again with
/sbin/mkinitrd -v - f /boot/initrd-2.6.8-1.521smp.img 2.6.8-1.521smp
All went well and there were some messages saying the 3w-9xxx module is used
After a reboot /dev/sdb is stil there !
After shutdown/power off/power on, everything still ok !
In /etc/sysconfig/hwconf there is
That's also what I see when using the hardware browser GUI, but it seems to
Thanks a lot to everybody who helped me out on this.
It's a nice experience to meet people who are willing to help without having
to pay them. I've learned a lot from your answers.
Now I'm going to find out how to mount the array to my file system and share
it with a windows client. I guess this will not be my last message :-).
