Sata Raid 6 channel controller monitoring

I just have a simple question that begins to worry to me. We have a PowerEdge
1800 with a sata raid controller (6 channels) with 4 hds configured in Raid5.
We have installed a debian stable (now etch, before sarge) and it's running
without any problems since one and half year 24/7
I configured the raid using the hardware raid in the bios. I choose the
partition schema and when I install the OS, the kernel (2.6) recognized the
resulting partitions of the raid without any problem (using aacraid module)
Now I'm a bit worry because I don't have any tool to monitor the state of the
hds. I have installed the afaapps tools but when I try to use the afacli
command doesn't it doesn't find any controller. On this page  I found that
the aacraid modules doesn't show any status. But I didn't create the raid
using the afacli soft. I created it using the bios driver.
So, how can I check the state of the raid?
