Just wanted to let everyone know that this has been solved. To correct the problem I followed Seth's advice and didn't use the MegaRaid driver from the Dell web site.

Sorry, been away for a few days. Where did you get the RedHat 7.2 CD Set
that contains the XFS capabilities? From SGI?
I wasn't aware that there was a ISO set for this version. If so that is
great, but it does sound like your RAID Drivers are missing from the kernel
and are not being loaded at all.
