    Default openSuSe 11 Raid0 installation problem

    Hello!

    I'm trying to install openSuSe 11 on my system and got a problem. When it comes to disk partitioning my raid0 array isn't recognized,the disks are shown as separate drives...
    I think it's my raid0 configuration ( I have 2x250GB Intel ICH9R RAID0 setup with XP and Vista installed on it, and I have left free space for openSuSe to install).

    Has anyone done it to install openSuSe on ICH9R software Raid0?

    Thanks in advance!

    yes, everything is installed on raid. I want now to install openSuSe on the raid array too.

    Software raid setups like this are generally not supported unless the chipset manufacturer has released a driver that you can load into the kernel somehow. You would be much better off with a true hardware raid controller.

    I know that but I don't have a hardware raid controller or another HDD, so I'm looking for a howto to install suse on the existing raid array

    I would suggest checking on Intel's site to see if they have a linux driver or howto, but if not, what you want to do isn't practical.
