Unfortunately, that doesn't appear to be possible, at least not from the

I suppose one could hack around in the HPDD configuration to make this work,
IF you jumper the 2372 for secondary address so the Adaptec doesn't see it
during power-on.

Now if you go to the trouble to do this, then it should be possible to do
what you're looking for.  Whether that's something you want to undertake is
another matter entirely.
