Hi List,
yesterday i tried to install CentOS6 on Server bei Hetzner.de
I noticed that Anaconda Installer is not possible to handle the 3TB 
Disks in Server
when u try to Partition them.

U can do only 3 normal partitions
or
u can do only 3 raid partitions,

the SOLUTION is:

Before U install Centos6 on the new naked server:

a) Start Server in Rescue mode
b) parted /dev/sda
c) mklabel gpt  ( Answer YES, you will do new disk label )
d) print  ( look that all is fine? )
e) parted /dev/sdb
f) mklabel gpt  ( Answer YES, you will do new disk label )
g) print ( Answer YES, you will do new disk label )
h) q ( for quit )

Now go back to Hetzner Customer Menu, and activate VNC INSTALL Centos6 
English 64 Bit

Voila! now at the Part of Partitioning u say "CUSTOM LAYOUT" and you 
can do your own Layout as you like.

Maybe this helps other ppl too.
