The raid driver doesn't replace the scsii driver. I'm talking
from my limited experience, other raid cards might be different
I guess.

The raid array I setup has hard drives connected to 2 scsii cards, 
the raid card is a seperate card. The scsii driver's loaded first, 
then the raid driver. 

/proc/pci and /proc/devices shows both scsii and raid devices.

Access to the logical drive, which in my case is 5 physical drives,
is through the raid device nodes, not the scsii ones.

Is this different to you system?
