Are you sure that drive #6 is actually running?
Are you sure that slot #6 is actually wired to the controller?
Are drives recognized only if AUTOCFG is on? And is it? (although I'd hope this is at a lower level than the OS)

More important, though, is the fact that I can't get the system to
the sixth drive. The machine was shipped with 5 8.5GB drives. Either the
system or the controller won't even look at the sixth drive.

Let me be a little clearer about that: I replaced the five 8.5GB drives with
6 17GB drives. However, throughout all of the steps I've been through to
create a RAID set and start parity protection on that set, the system has
never recognized all six drives; it has only recognized five. The ones that
are recognized are the five that happen to inhabit the physical locations of
the original five drives. The sixth drive, located in the rightmost slot
(which was empty before), hasn't appeared in any of the configuration
screens I've seen up to this point.
