SUSE 11.3 Install Hangs

I am new to Linux and attempting my first installation. Ran into an issue and I'm not sure how to resolve. Installing the openSUSE 11.3 distro on my ASUS P6X58D based system. I suspect that this is related to my use of the Intel Matrix storage controller, but cannot be sure. My system has a 2tb system drive and three 1.5 tb data drives configured in a RAID 5 arrangement.

When installing the SUSE distro it proceeds through the hardware checkout and hangs up at 60% complete with a message indicating "searching for linux partition". I've let the machine run for 30 minutes with no progress.

Any suggestions on how to resolve would be much appreciated. Thanks.

See this bug:

It seems to work on 11.2 though.
