Where's that written at? Everything I read in the last several weeks says to just boot to the install and then have it boot the installed system. No mention that, hey, wait, there's two opportunities to do this and if you have a software RAID device (and possibly for other reasons) you want to wait until the second one.
If there is documentation out there stating that I'll be even less happy as it means I either couldn't find it (possible tard) or I read it and it never "sank in" (definately a tard)!

Well, here's an update - and I'm not real happy about this but I'm glad to share my pain. If you have root on a software RAID you can not boot to an install CD and jump out at the first option to boot installed system - you'll get the errors I saw. HOWEVER, if you stay in the install (linuxrc?), you'll get a SECOND option to jump out and boot the installed system and at that point the system CAN see the software RAID devices!
Always use yast to boot into an already installed system.
