Hi All

Further to my previous email, I've temporarily ditched the adaptec card 
and am experimenting with the motherboard's built in Silicon Image RAID 
controller. Seems to work much better!

I ran dmraid -ay and I can format /dev/mapper/sil_afbgccdfdfcd but can't 
pvcreate it:

crocodile ~ # dmraid -s
*** Active Set
name   : sil_afbgccdfdfcd
size   : 290445824
stride : 256
type   : stripe
status : ok
subsets: 0
devs   : 2
spares : 0
crocodile ~ # pvcreate /dev/mapper/sil_afbgccdfdfcd
  Device /dev/mapper/sil_afbgccdfdfcd not found.

Is there a step I'm missing?
