Glad it's all working out for you.
Well, I still haven't dl'd the DVD ISO but I will soon. Thanks.
I did my first 9.2 install via FTP.
I have no experience installing Linux via FTP. How is that done on a PC with a blank hard drive?
I thought enough of that release that I went out and found a torrent site which had the CD ISOs. I used that set and have installed 9.2 on countless boxes. I even downloaded the DVD ISO, and use that whenever a box has a DVD drive.
Sounds like we're a lot alike in that way. I'm very pleased with SuSE 9.2 Pro. I was a dedicated Red Hat user from 1999 until 2003 when they yanked the rug out from under their less-than-enterprise customer base. After that I began searching for a suitable replacement distro that both I and my mother could use on our separate machines. I went with Mandrake 9.2 last year. It looked promising but was *never* as stable as my older Red Hat + Ximian Gnome setup. I then tried SuSE 9.2 Pro this past spring when I bought a completely new PC and have been enjoying ever since a return to the stability that I haven't had since my Red Hat days. And now I've finally found time to drive out and get my mother's PC up-to-speed with mine.
Actually I have an archive of about every SuSE release since 6.0. Seek and you shall find....:-) And then share!
Yep! I will and I do. :)
The only things I don't like about SuSE 9.2 Pro is the fact that it would not do my dual-boot setup correctly. I have WinXP on a SATA-connected drive and SuSE 9.2 Pro on a parallel-connected drive. SuSE 9.2 Pro recognizes both just fine and *thinks* it's setting them up with a standard dual-boot configuration using grub but whenever I use the menu to boot into WinXP, it won't do it.
I have resorted to installing SuSE on the parallel bus drive as if it is a stand-alone installation and then just changing my BIOS settings manually to boot from one drive or the other. It's a minor inconvenience and at times I actually prefer it! :)
SuSE 9.2 Pro also refuses to recognize my Linksys WMP54G wireless NIC which is a major irritant to me that I'm just going to have to put up with until I find time to find a solution that works. I've tried doing that ndis wrapper thing which some people say will make it work but I've had no success.
Happy New Year!
