AS 2.1 kernel panic with RAID storage on 2650

     I have installed Red Hat AS 2.1 on a Poweredge 2650 with an Adaptec controller and an LSI RAID controller.  The system boots from the scsi drives on the Adaptec controller.  The system was booting fine until I configured a logical drive on the LSI RAID storage.  Now, the kernel panics.  It looks like the drives on the Adaptec controller are not being mounted.  If I clear the configuration on the external storage, then the system will boot, but there are no logical drives to work with.  What do I need to do to correct this?  This is the first time I have worked with an external storage array and am fairly clueless even after reading the documentation.  Thanks for any help you can give me.
