Don't think so. I'd have expected[code]-bash: fdisk: command not found[/code]or similar if the path where the problem. Lack of fdisk output is typical of invocation by not-root with a correct path, but the prompt seems to indicate root.

Indeed, I'm su'd into root for those outputs. I believe the drivers for the controller were removed during the C3 to C4 upgrade and have caused that. Fresh drivers may (I hope) allow the OS to see the drives under the controller. I can see the pair of 40's with the Dell controller app.
There was an issue with the dell-alsa (audio) rpm that I had to remove from the rpm database but that was the only Dell specific package I had to manually fudge. I wouldn't think that would have any affect on the controller :-?

What do the following return?[code]
uname -rmi
rpm -qa kernel\*
grep -i 101e /lib/modules/*/modules.alias | grep -i 1960[/code]

Here's those outputs...

[root@bluefin root]# uname -rmi
2.4.21-63.EL i686 i386

[root@bluefin root]# rpm -qa kernel\*
kernel-2.6.9-103.EL
kernel-utils-2.4-23.el4
kernel-doc-2.6.9-103.EL

[root@bluefin root]# grep -i 101e /lib/modules/*/modules.alias | grep -i 1960
alias pci:v0000101Ed00001960sv00001028sd00000471bc*sc*i* megaraid_mbox
alias pci:v0000101Ed00001960sv00001028sd00000493bc*sc*i* megaraid_mbox
alias pci:v0000101Ed00001960sv00001028sd00000475bc*sc*i* megaraid_mbox
alias pci:v0000101Ed00001960sv0000101Esd00000475bc*sc*i* megaraid_mbox
alias pci:v0000101Ed00001960sv0000101Esd00000493bc*sc*i* megaraid_mbox

I did have to remove the 2.4 rpm from the db during the C4 upgrade but the files are still intact...

Ouch! Running a kernel that seems to have been removed as far as RPM is concerned seems unsafe. I have no idea what that has to do with the fdisk issue, but I'd be very cautious about reboots.
