Red face Dmraid partitions names

Hello to everybody. Please help me. I have two SATA drives in a bios fake raid0 on nVIDIA nForce3-250Gb with two partition NTFS for Win XP, one ext3 as Linux root and one for Swap. In FC3 I use a PATA drive with a little /boot partition and everything work OK (I don’t try to make a new initrd). Dmraid -ay creates in /dev/mapper, devices for raid and the four partitions: nvidia_jdabijfd, nvidia_jdabijfd1 … nvidia_jdabijfd4.
When I try to upgrade to FC5, anaconda fail with message “cannot mount \dev\mapper\nvidia_jdabijfdp2 partition is not exist”. Anaconda find correct the raid device and the partitions, the properties of the partitions are corrects (in Disk druid), but the name of the devices use a “p” suffix. The same things are happen in case of clear install, upgrade or Linux rescue DVD mode. What can I do for installing or upgrading FC5? The “p” suffix appears deliberate in Anaconda:
anaconda-10.91.16-1 - More consistency in dev naming for dmraid (pjones)
booty-0.66-1 - use "mapper/raidnamep0" for partition names instead of "mapper/raidname0"

Thanks in advance,
