Hate to reply to my own post, but I was eventually able to get the PV660F
working by using the EAD management utility avaliable from:


It's a Java app that wants to be served via a webserver on the machine
attached to the PV660F, or run through a browser on localhost.  It has a
few more functions than the supplied Dell Array Manager, such as
_enabling_ the virtual disks after you create them.  I didn't find any
option like that in the Dell supplied utility, and that appeared to be the
problem in my case.
