I have switched my laptop to just Suse as a linux option. It just works with wireless so I went wtih ease of use. Take time to think things over and decide what you really want to do. Can you connect in PCLos?

You can reinstall Suse to hda8 and then tell it lilo and write to mbr. When done with that then we can go back and chnage the pclos lilo to write to partition and go from there.Can you go through the install by yourself? If not, then another day would be better as dinner will be ready in less than half an hour. ;)Now that school is starting and I am working again, I don't have as much time during the week for installs.

I believe he would be better with SUSE over PCLOS also. PCLOS is a nice distro and everything, but seems to have it's problems, never been able to get it to function as good as my other distros.Wow Julia, our schools are combining schools to try and have enough students. I believe we have combined 5 area schools now to ours.

This time last year we had 20 students and a high enrollment of about 48. I think we have 48 now with students coming in all day long to register. I guess our program is very popular. We specialize in keeping students in school instead of dropping out as an alternative school. ;)

That is great Julia - education is what people needColin, I don't miss the days of distro hopping. I made myself promise that I would stick it out with Gentoo and Slackware without installing any more distros and I have held true to that now for almost 2 years and I am very glad I did. I will try a live cd here and there, but no installs.I am very curious tho about ubuntu and may try the ubuntu live cd this time around.

to install packages don't you just:To install a package listed in your YaST Sources open your YaST Control Center YaST -> Software -> Install and Remove Software found in either your KMenu (KDE Menu) or NMenu (Novell Menu formally called Gnome Menu). Select a package from the list and click the "accept" button. No reboot required.I don't know what you have or don't have install Colin

if your missing most of the SUSE operating system you might just want to reinstall like you mentioned about doing before. The install should setup your machine with a desktop environment full of apps

well I would say go for the DVD download if ya can and are on broadband, than you don't have to mess with 5 cds.It sounds like you really need to start the install over if you don't have a complete SUSE desktop with applications. Otherwise your going to be in YAST installing stuff anyway.
