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.
