Simon.  Are you enrolled on the official SuSE mailing list?  There are
about 99% of long term hardcore SuSE users on there who are literally
tearing their hair out because SuSE 10.1 is utter pants.  These are
guys who way more experience than I do in using Linux and they are all
reverting back to SuSE 10.  Now, I cannot say anything from a personal
point of view because I haven't tried 10.1 myself.  I've waited (I
have suggested this waiting period to others) to see what
transpires... I'm so glad I have.  There are a lot of problems  with
10.1  It seems to be SuSE 9.2 all over again (that was rubbish and I
have the boxed set together with the 90 day support package, long run
out of course) so I shall wait until 10.2 or even 11

No doubt there will be a number of people who have no problems at all,
that's great for them but not for the majority :-(
I am only human, please forgive me if I make a mistake it is not deliberate.
PLEASE DON'T drink and drive it's not clever, it's just stupid.
