Installing boot loader on RAID


I've created identical partitions (root, swap, user, home) on two disks and mirrored them, using the YaST installer.

However, I can't seem to get the boot loader to install. I've tried all the choices---MBR v. writing it to the array/partition itself. The system won't boot.

Is there a way to install the boot loader without tedious line commands?

No luck on install

Yeah, it's kind of frustrating because now Linux won't even install on a single disk.

I figured I could write the boot loader reference into the MBR, by performing a single-disk install first. Then, I'd re-install on RAID1 arrays.

No luck.

The installer no longer lists my 3rd & 4th hard drives--only drives 1 & 2 are listed. Also, it won't even install using the recommended settings.

Seems to me like openSuSE needs some more work before it can be used in a professional setting. Oh well :-(
