MSA 60, P800 and RHEL 4.5

We have just purchased an MSA60 with 5 1TB SATA disks. It is connected to our (non HP) server via a P800 SAS raid controller.

I have created a LUN with size of 4 TB. Attemps to run parted on it return:

cciss: cmd 0000010000600000 is reported invalid

uname -an
Linux 2.6.9-78.0.1.ELlargesmp #1 SMP Tue Aug 5 14:14:23 CDT 2008 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Should I downgrade kernel and use the HP binary driver? The driver at sourceforge seems really old. According to http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?locale=en_US&objectID=c01077580 thoughm I should have no problems:

dmesg|grep RH
HP CISS Driver (v 2.6.20.RH1)
