I remember that on an IDE RAID card I got another device loaded at
install time (md0 I think) as well as the two device types for the individual

With this SCSI Card / Drives I only see devices for the two seperate 
drives, not any unified device.

Out of interest when I went back into the SCSI BIOS after installing
5.4 I noticed in the RAID section that it said "Degraded" next to
the second disc suggesting things werent as they should be.

Should I leave the Host RAID BIOS setting off or are there any other
steps I should have taken ?

Should the installer treat both of these drives together when auto 
partitioning (this worked great with the IDE RAID card)

Any advice graciously appreciated

Thanks !
