Here is WDC's data lifeguard utility for DOS:

Also, you might want to try flashing the firmware for the
controller/motherboard with the lastest versions.  I've had several
occaisons recently where I couldn't get hardware to work with BSD until I
got up to the lastest firmware (an old dell perc 2 most recently).  I
didn't see the original email, so I may be off-base on the controller
being the problem, though.
