10 This sounds like a SCSI problem. You'll have to check IDs,
11 cabling, termination, host adapter firmware, the whole lot.
13 Try connecting one drive at a time and see what the kernel
14 displays. I've seen a faulty SCSI device prevent the whole chain
15 from working.
17 I doubt that it's a kernel problem, since one drive is detected.
18 If *no* drives were detected, then I'd suspect the kernel.
