My recollection is getting a little fuzzy at this point as there have been so many install attempts on this hardware, but if I recall correctly, my first attempt was onto a single SCSI drive (the same Mylex controller), and I let the installer do the default partitioning ( / takes everything but a swap partition at the end of the disk). I still had trouble with grub (that recollection is pretty clear....I had trouble with using a grub floppy to get into the install, as I had neglected to connect the floppy cable to the motherboard :-\ )

I did install an early RC of Intrepid on an old Dell desktop with a couple of IDE drives in it....absolutely no trouble at all with that one, so I know it does work :-)
