I recently attached a new SATA2SCSI Hardwareraid to my Dell Poweredge 
1650 running Fedora Core Linux. The Raid is a Starline easyraid X8P with 
8 * 160 GB SATA as a raid 5.

The server is running fine so far and its SCSI-Bios has found the raid.

But Linux isn't showing the RAID :-( I can't fdisk /dev/sdb and there is 
no entry of showing the disk in the logs or dmesg.

Any Ideas, did I miss something....?
