I assume you mean "software RAID"...

I think you can just used the mdadm commands...

Something like this:

Create the software raid using the "mdadm" command
Code:
 root@host# mdadm --create /dev/md0 --level=1 --raid-devices=2 /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1
Confrim with either...
Code:
root@host# cat /proc/mdstat
**OR**
Code:
 root@host# mdadm --verbose /dev/md0
You have to wait until it's "ready"

Now (as with any disks...logical or not); you need to format
Code:
root@host# mkfs.ext4 /dev/md0
You can now "mount" it just like any other disk
Code:
root@host# mount /dev/md0 /data
To keep it persistem upon reboots; you must edit the correct files...
Code:
root@host# cat /etc/fstab
          /dev/md0      /data   ext4    defaults        0       0
root@host# cat /etc/mdadm.conf
          ARRAY         /dev/md0        devices=/dev/sdb1,/dev/sdc1
Googled "mdadm OpenSUSE 11" and found this: http://youtu.be/0_dxuk7LZgY
