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?
