I configured the disks as JBOD but got the same results. I think the
problem lies with all the disks each being 2TB so they can't be seen
with sysinstall. maybe the way forward is to boot to live CD so there's
a full environment, then try to sort it with GPT, then do an install
from the liveCD. I'll try this tonight.
