Has anyone used the Western Digital 3TB Caviar Green Hard Drives with a RAID controller that sees the drives in CentOS 5.5?

I recently purchased four of the Western Digital 3TB Caviar Green Hard Drive to put in a DB server. I have tried to configure CentOS 5.5 with both an Areca ARC-1210 and a HighPoint RocketRAID 2710 both to no correct function. The ARC-1210 sees the drives as 800GB drives so that doesn't work and the HP RocketRAID sees the drives allows me to configure them in a RAID just will not see the RAID when I am installing CentOS. I have looked and looked but HP does not have drivers for Cent 5.5 for this RAID card so I ask... Has anyone used these drives and configured a RAID and had the OS see the Drives correctly? Please let me know what RAID cards you used if so.
