Not to bring up an old question but. . .are/were you using the SCSI card from the Compaq or just any old SCSI card?

A lot of the the SCSI adapters on Compaqs would have step one of the Raid controler burned into a chip on the card.

IBM also used custom EPROMS

I would have to guess that the RAID had a matching RAID card.

Are you trying to use the drives as "one" drive or five drives.
