SATA Drive Identified as SCSI

The hard drives in my new computer consist of two SATA drives. The only way to hook up SATA drives to my A8V Deluxe mobo is on one of the RAID controllers. I hooked my two drives onto the VIA controller, but of course the WinXP install CD didn't recognize the SATA drives. I put the VIA RAID driver on a floppy disk and did F6 during the WinXP install, and everything worked great. Now I'm in Windows, and my two hard drives identify as "SCSI Disk Device"s, not SATA. Is this normal, or did I do something wrong in the install process? Everything seems to be working fine so far, but I haven't installed any programs yet.

My deepest apologies, I will never, ever call YOUR sata drive any other than sata again.
