Description Brock Organ 2005-04-20 18:45:46 EDT
* RHEL3 U4 s390x AS
* nfs vnc GUI install with > 27 RAID partitions
* / on RAID0 with 32 RAID partitions

when going to package installation phase, the installer gives a dialog:

"An error occurred trying to format md0.  This problem is serious and the install cannot continue."

Then the install dies ... on the 3270 console, some output is observed:

> <...>

> dasds:VOL1/  0X340A: dasds1
> dasdr:VOL1/  0X3409: dasdr1

> mkraid: aborted.

You can only have 27 members for a RAID device based on the format of the RAID
superblock.  Added error checking for this to HEAD, probably won't backport
unless it becomes something a customer is hitting.
