I have an abundance of information all I need to know is what to say that
will help. 

The OS I am loading is currently FreeBSD 5.3
I went to adaptec and found some information about FreeBSD 4.11 so I tried.
I can get Solaris 10 to load but it fails to find the raid as a valid drive.
Fedora Core 2 also boots and says it can't find a drive.
The Raid boots up fine and builds with no faults.

When I install a little 850 meg IDE drive and set that to master,
Still the btx loader dies. Here is what the final screen says:

BTX Halted

I think I copied all that correctly.
