    I am still in the middle of upgrading an old G3 450 with 256 ram from os 9 to osX.2.8

    I just noticed that the extra 2 drives (25 gigs each) that are on a scsi card are no longer there. I ran system profiler - it sees the scsi card but no drives....

    i am repairing permissions now, and will boot into OS 9 and hope to find the data on those drives, so this may be premature panic, but what am i to do?

    I do not know what cards they are, vendor, so i don't know what drivers they may need - or if they even work at all on OSX - my bad.

    Well if anyone has a great thought while i finish on that machine - I'd love to hear some good news.

    You might open your case and see if you can figure out what kind of cards you have. Knowing that will most likely be key to figuring out your problem. Most cards have the company name on them or something of that nature. Your data is probably okay though. Unless you told the installer to format all your drives... but most likely your data is safe...
