Forget what I've written in my other mail, it's a problem of mkinitrd,
which could be "solved" by pressing ctrl-d, when the system hangs.
You could comment out this line (around 1770) in /sbin/mkinitrd and
run mkinitrd again to correct the problem temporarily (until SuSE
fixed the problem):
| echo "No root device found; exiting to /bin/sh"
| cd /
| #/bin/sh # <<< comment out this line in this way
I just entered a bug report about this.
SW RAID is sometimes 'ne echte zicke, but never the less quite useful.
