Will Suse Linux 9.1/9.2 install and run on my system?

Will SUSE 9.1 or 9.2 install on this system? Mostly concerned about raid 0 and the i875P chipset. I used SUSE and Redhat a few years ago and have some limited experience installing the OS. I will want a dual boot config... Linux / XP

Pentium4 3.2 GHz
IC7-MAX3 Intel i875P
2 channel SATA 150MB/s data transfer rate via South Bridge (Intel)
Raid 0 Volume 229.0GB Maxtor SATA 7200rpm
Total Memory : 1535MB DDR Corsair XMS PC3200 2-3-3-6
Intel CSA Gigabit LAN
Creative SB Audigy
Microsoft Windows XP Pro Sp2

Thanks for your help.

I would say yes it will and it'll fly(ZOOOOOOOOOOOOM) support is pretty darn good in linux, one way to see is to run through the partitioning part of the install and make sure it detects your hard drive and that its got the correct size etc, then if not, u can bail. I dont see why the chipset wouldn't be supported but I'm not a hardware guru on that front. My general rule of thumb is "if it'll run on a toaster it'll run on this" :P
Maybe someone else will have a bit more input on the chipset but I really think you'd be pretty safe to go ahead as long as your HD is detected.
