You just have to make sure your installed kernel support the raid 
controller (directly into kernel binary, or via megaraid kernel module)
If you have raid support via module, make sure the megaraid module is 
mentionned into the /etc/modules config file (modules that must be 
loaded at boot time) or force kernel using it into your bootloader.

The devices names sould not change so you should't have to touch to
