    The only time i have used Suse before was with the live cds so i thought
    i would give Suse 9.1 Personal a go. I must say i am quite impressed,
    except for yast2 which seems to give me dependancy errors all the time,
    which i sorted out by installing apt.

    I have a major problem though which occurred in Mandrake 10 as well but
    is more stable on Suse.

    First of all i installed Suse on my Hyper Threading machine and the smp
    kernel was installed. I then upgraded to the latest bug fix kernel with
    the "rpm -ivh" switch. A few days later that kernel had uninstalled
    itself. I am now back to my original smp kernel.

    Second of all i get segfaults on my rpm packages that i have downloaded
    and or an error that they have a bad signature. But when i install them
    the first time they work. Its only after a day or two they get corrupt.
    I then run "rpm --rebuildb" and can sometimes install the rpm.

    Is this a hardware incompatibility problem or a smp kernel problem ? I
    am using an intel cpu with a Asus P4S800-MX motherboard.

    Can i install the stock normal kernel and have Hyper Threading enabled ?

    Will i get options on my boot splash screen to choose between kernels ?
    as i remember when i had two smp kernels installed it did not give me an
