I don't have an easy way to copy this output right now (network-console
seems unusable outside of the daily builds due to #288053 AFAICT?), but
/dev/discs contains two disks: one for the RAID array (with all its
partitions), and one for the CD-ROM (no disc, so no partitions).

fdisk -l displays the RAID SCSI device and all of its partitions.
