yes, it is a 3ware 9650SE-8ML.
I used the driver disk during the install, and the installer saw the
raid devices. I deselected them during the partitioning of the install
disks, and the installed system doesn't see those devices.
I then updated the kernel and the new kernel doesn't see the devices either.
When I boot the old kernel again, it still doesn't see the devices.
Bothe kernels see the card though (looking in /var/log/messages after boot.
