If the SCSI card finds them all at boot, that is good. If it does not,
then fix that first.

When Linux starts up, check your logs and search for (case
insensitive) "cd" or "sr" or "scsi" to find the section where SCSI drives
are found.

Once the Linux kernel can find them, they should be available and assigned
to /dev/sr0 /dev/sr1 /dev/sr2 ...

Check the logs to see what the kernel says. If it says it has found the
drives,then, you are - or should be in business.
