I don't think you understand how to use it. First, BEFORE YOU TRY TO
INSTALL, use the firmware option while it's getting up - I think it's
<ctrl-R>, and create a logical drive, whatever RAID level you want, with
spares if it's not just RAID 1. Tell it to initialize (you can do a quick
initialize). Then exit that, and it'll reboot, and Linux will see it
presented by the controller as one physical drive, and it should be happy.
