This sounds like a SCSI problem.  You'll have to check IDs,
cabling, termination, host adapter firmware, the whole lot.

Try connecting one drive at a time and see what the kernel
displays.  I've seen a faulty SCSI device prevent the whole chain
from working.

I doubt that it's a kernel problem, since one drive is detected.
If *no* drives were detected, then I'd suspect the kernel.
