openSuse 11.2 installation problems

Hi there!

Besides from the looks of this forum section (desert? no one there, no one posting, maybe some occasional tumble weed passing by) i'm asking for help on installing the latest opensuse (11.2) on my rig.

everything looks fine until i come to paritioning my hard drives. Somehwo my intel raid0 doesn't seem to be correctly seen by opensuse.
I have two 1TB disks (WD green) in intel raid0 on my rig. These 2TB are divided into 4 paritions.
1 partition is 60 GB (system)
2 partition is 800 GB (videos)
3 partition is 400 GB (data, programs, games)
4 partition is 250 GB (user data, music)
the 4th partitions is part of an extended partition, within this partition there are over 350GB left for linux to use.

Somehow the suse partitiones doesn't want to recognize partition 4 as NTFS, therefore won't let me mount it. It calls this partition partition6, same as the linux boot partition it wants to build.
Tried to create the partitions i need with partitoin manager in windows andf then install linux, but then the suse-partitioner sees my partitions but show some akward start and end cylinders for them.

So i don't dare going any further because i'm afraid existing windows partitions may be destroyed.

Anyone out there who has installed 11.2 on an intel raid 0 system (anyone out there at all?)?
