- From SuSE:

You CANNOT use the boot manager GRUB in SuSE Linux 8.1 if your ROOT partition
is installed on a RAID SYSTEM (including Software Raid or LVM).

_and besides_, I found out the 'professional' way - by trying it ;-)

(Additionally, I thyink either a tech from SuSE or someone on this list
confirmed that fact)

I cannot find anything in the grub documentation about it either way. The work
"raid" does not exist in GRUB's vocabulary, apparently.

Ok, so you're a genie and it works for you. That's good! Be happy.

Anyway, the information I provided for the common good does _not_ hurt anyone!
I simply siad you _might_ find, as I did, that your system won't boot. If
you DIDN'T find that your system won't boot, I wasn't talking to you.

(In case you still don't understand, I was only talkihg to people who are
having trouble booting 8.1. If your system works ok, ignore me. Definately
don't complain that I'm trying to pass along helpful information)
