[SunHELP] SATA HDD on Sil3112 not recognized

I am running Solaris 9/05 on a low cost Celeron-based PC. Recently I 
have purchased a Sil 3112 SATA controller and two SATA drives to work 
with it.
When I booted Solaris it recognized the SATA controller but the `format` 
command did not see any of the 2 drives connected to it. What was I 
doing wrong? OpenBSD saw both the drives and was ready to work with it 
right away. What does Solaris 9x86 need to work with these drives?

I hope your advice will help. Thank you.
