Hi! I'm from Poland an my english is not good.
I have problem with installing RedHatLinux 9.2 (AUROX 9.2) in system:

Motherboard: ASUS A7N8X with silcon image RAID Serial Ata Controller
Hard disks: two hard disks Seagate 80GB serial ata in STRIPE RAID SET = one virtual volume (capacity: 180GB)

In this volume i have partitions (maked by Partition Magic 8.0 program):

- 10GB primary bootable FAT32 (installed WindowsXP)
- 140GB extended
- 5GB logical FAT32 (installed Windows98)
- 120GB logical NTFS (partition for data)
- 10GB EXT3 (for linux)
- 0.5GB linux SWAP

In that situation i try to install AUROX Linux 9.2. I maked floppy disk with drivers for SATA controller and then boot's system from AUROX LINUX installation CD #1.
Installation starts succesfully, but when i must make partition (question: automatic or disk druid partitioning program) linux told me:

"Your partition table is bad. Do you reinitialize disk, and lost data?"
I don't want lost data!!!
I wont linux see my RAID set, and maked partitons!!!

Please help.
