installing ESXi 4.0 on a Dell PowerEdge SC1420 w/ a Syba SATA PCI-X 4x card. installs fine w/out controller card, but i added 2 more drives. getting error, not reading any drives. tried different RAID configs and no RAID at all, same thing. is there a way to load the drivers for the controller card on install kinda like w/ nLite/Windows? i'd imagine this is the issue. thx..

No, you need to use supported hardware and can't load extra drivers.
See http://www.vm-help.com/esx40i/esx40_whitebox_HCL.php for a fairly comprehensive list of "whitebox" components, or alternatively search the VMWare Compatibility Guide.
