Scsi drive not found

I added two scsi drives on our Gateway 9510 server and reconfigured them to RAID 1. Raid controller is LSI 20320-R; when running windows setup it says it cannot find any drives. I added drivers with floppy (F6) during setup and I am sure they are the correct drivers - downloaded them after checking the controller's serial number. Termination is enabled on controller as well, ID's are 0,1,2,3 for drives, 6 for processor and 7 for controller.

Does the controller see the drives?

Can you run any utilities on the drives from the controller?

Next thing
does Windows see the controller?

IF you go in into disk management within windows
dose it see the un partitioned space?

what service pack is windows on?
and I assume that you have the latest and greatest drivers for
 the controller and the drives?

I wiped the original OS out after adding two more drives. Reconfigured Raid 1 on the controller for all four drives; when running setup to install 2003 it stops with the message that it cannot found any drives.

Have you tried this.
Do not do the F6 when your installing.

what I am thinking here is to get the OS installed then
updated the drivers. The default install should have "generic"
drivers to bring the OS up.

Have you tried installing form a "slip-streamed" install disk?
