Cannot see Intel X520DA on ESX 3.5 box

I have just installed a new iSCSI SAN and have an ESXi 4.1 embedded box connected to it fine.  I want to move all of my VMs over to the 4.1 box before upgrading the 3.5 box to 4.1, then upgrade both to ESXi 5.  I installed an X520DA iSCSI initiator in the 3.5 box (Dell PE R900) and cannot see it under Configuration -> Storage Adapters.  I have refreshed multiple times and still don't see the hardware.  I have searched the Internet and this site and haven't found anything that has helped.  I am hoping that the community can help me with this so I don't have to spend hours using the stand alone converter (don't have vCenter and not likely to get funding for it for a while).  Can anyone help me out with this?

Found out that you have to upgrade to 4.1 or higher to see X520 initiators and put them to use.
