I think I see what you are driving at, easiest way is to click on the 
(Hopefully) red, yellow or green globe that should open the updater give root 
password click next it will then present you with security updates.

If you look there are tick boxes for removing source files after installation 
and configuring fully automated updates.

With regards Yast to me its pretty straight forward and is reminiscent of 
Synaptic. I think you just need to adopt the rule I use, Yast-->Software 
management is for adding/removing YOU is for updating.

I intend to take the plunge and install 10.1 tonight or this week I cant make 
up my mind which would be better an upgrade or install from fresh. Fresh 
would be better but then its the pain of putting stuff back.

10.1 has a much better updater than 10.0 (GUI wise) when I've upgraded I'll be 
in a better position to comment.
