Yes, you pointed me into the right direction. For those how are
interested see [1] for further information.

I have 7 SCSI HDs within my AS1200: 
sd{0,1} are ment for netbsd. This are 2x 9GB disks, which should become
a RAID1-set. 
sd{2,3,4,5,6} are ment for data. This are 5x 50GB disks, which should
become a RAID5-set. 

So far I have no problems initilazing the RAID1-set, but the
configuration software (RA200RCU.exe) allows me to only setup a RAID5
set of 32GB. Is this due a controller limitation, or am I doing sth.
wrong? I have already upgraded to latest firmware :(

If this should really be a limitation, which controller could you
recommend to me for this purpose? It would be great if it would support
