I have this little delight in front of me sometime very soon.  SuSE
9.2 is sitting under my desk as I type.  I'm puzzled though, Mo.  I
thought the two DVD's were purely for 64bit chips?  I have both of
course in the boxed set (CD's and DVD's) .  The PC I shall install
into - or upgrade as it already runs 9.1 - has a DVD drive so I can
use either.  But the chip is a lowly old AMD K6 350mhz.

Next, what exaclty would I have to back up to get my existing set up. 
What I would like to do is Install 9.2 onto a clean unused 80gb drive
then swap over whatever files have my configuration data in them.  But
which ones are they exactly?

Take care.
