You need to define the raid in the bios of the card and build it there.
After that you should see the raid as a single scsi drive. This is, if
you are using the binary drivers provided by Promise. If you use the 
Open source drivers you should make devices in the /dev/ataraid
subdirectory and your raid should appear as /dev/atatraid/d0p1 etc.

For more info see the various howto documents on the web.
