Thanks for the link Rajko. While on the road the thought occured to me
that the RAID is the problem and I was under the thinking that since
Linux was installed on sda, it would be the drive that the mbr would be
located, but it had totally escaped me that XP actually boots from the
raid array. So doing some research I found that Linux will have trouble
with the raid, especially since it's basically a software (via the bios)
raid and while there was an example of how to get around that, it
wouldn't be physically possible with the way that drive is setup, so I'm
going to get rid of the raid, free up both those drives and go from
there.

Carl probably passed right out about now. :-) I'm sure we might have hit
on something that SuSe might want to take a look at, and a LOT of time
was spent on this and I do appreciate all the efforts and suggestions
people have given me, but although I really felt like giving up the
other day, I decided I'm NOT going to let Linux kick my butt DARN IT! :-)
So I'll be offline for a little bit this evening doing some serious
re-configurations! :-)

Thanks!
