It sounds like you put the card into a 33Mhz/32bit slot. Try other slots.

I don't think it's the slot. The RA4100 to the best of my knowledge does not support a switch implementation. If you have a hub try that first.

The reaason you're getting the "no array controller error" is because it can't see the controller. Boot to the smartstart CD.. if you do not get the fibre channel utilities from the main menu or you can't see the Array controller from that level then it's not configured properly.
