Hello all

I'm running Debian 3.0r2 on Alpha 4100 and want it to see (not boot off,
just use the disks on) a StorageWorks 800 disk array.  There is a DEC
KZPSA SCSI card in the Alpha connecting to an HSZ50 in the SW800.  I
know the hardware is okay and terminated properly and so on, as the same
hardware used see the volumes under Tru64 Unix just fine, and I can
still see the volumes at the SRM (firmware) level (on the HSZ50, you
pre-build RAID volumes using a VT terminal attached to the HSZ50

When Debian boots, it sees the KZPSA but no volumes attached (i.e., just
as though I hadn't made the volumes on the HSZ50).  Any ideas where to
start?  Do I have to somehow put ext2 filesystems (or even disklabels)
on the volumes before Debian will deign to identify them?  Or is what
I'm asking completely impossible?

I'm okay with Unixes in a very general sysadmin sense but pretty
clueless when it comes to Linux.
