[clug] Serial ATA on Tyan Tiger i7320R

We have a new 1U server unit here and I would like to install Debian 
(sarge) onto it.  the board has Adaptec hardware RAID on the SATA drives 
(RAID-1) and I would like to use that.

I am using the latest netinstall of Sarge.
A 2.4 installation does not find the SATA drives.  Not good.
A 2.6 kernel install sees two SCSI drives rather than one (i.e. it is 
ignoring the hidden hardware mirroring).
SATA RAID is enabled in the BIOA and  the BIOS loads and reports 1 
logical unit.  However, I suspect that linux is ignoring that....

Does anyone have suggestions as to how I can get the hardware RAID to work?
I dont really want to use software RAID.
