It's possible to create partitions on /dev/md0 (raid) with gui installer.
I have created raid5 (/dev/md0), then selected raid volume and created 3 
pаrtitions  on it (it's possible in "automatic" mode)
After that installer fails with error like this
kernel was unable to read partition table

As far as I know it shouldn't be possible to create/to access patitions on 
RAID volume, at least without patching the kernel.
I think installer shouldn't give us the possibility to create partitions on 
RAID volumes.

sorry for my english...
