I don't know what's wrong (though I don't think the drives should
probe both as wd* and as part of the "ataraid") but you're aware that
"hardware RAID" is what the Linux people call "fakeraid"?  It's only
for the benefit of the BIOS.  You should probably turn it off and
just use RAIDframe -- we can boot and run just fine from a RAIDframe
