Hi -

I am trying to install SuSE on my RAID partition, but I can't get the boot
partition to see the root partition. I have to have them separate or the
boot loader won't intall the root. Is there some kernel parameter that I
have to pass it from the boot loader? I already have the loader have a root=
command. I can get the system to boot if I tell it to boot when I enter
setup from the CD-ROM.

Any ideas?
