I'm back in windows to see if it still works.  IT DOES.   So I have to call it a complete success, even though it didn't go exactly as I intended.  It wouldn't let me instal SuSE on my E: drive, so it's on d:  no biggie.I'm pooped, so it's time to walk the dog and hit the sack.

Congrats!!! :unsure:

I get to use my computer at home very little.   So I plan to spend as much time as possible with SuSE, finding programs I like, getting the feel for it.  Learning directory structure and use, and putting the good advice contained in these pages to good use.  Maybe I can talk my bosses into daul-booting a machine here so we have a LINUX system to learn and play on. B) Just some notes for any of you thinking about taking the Linux plunge.  Installation (with SuSE) was a breeze.  Forget about the M$ crap of installing drivers and all that rebooting......  SuSE found all my hardware, had the drivers for them, and just went straight on through.  total time took about 30 minutes, including me stumbling through configuring my ISDN card.  But compared to** the ISDN card went in so simple, I could not believe it.  Once the machine re-booted, the desktop came up.  I connected to the internet first try.  Gotta love it!!Be BOLD!!  Jump right in.  NO....DIVE.  get your head wet!!   B)  B)

It´s nice to see someone so happy and full of desire to learn !  I think with the spirit you have, you could be able to convince your boss to dualboot. As far as I know the German governement is even promoting the use of Linux, so if you are using SuSE, a German product after all, they should rise your monthly pay with at least 10% tax-reduction :DB) Bruno

congrats on the success!  it's a sweet looking OS, eh?I showed SuSE 8.2 to my older brother over the weekend, (he just runs XP) and he's like "I'm bringing my pC next weekend and you're putting this on mine!  this looks amazing!"Once I have the CDs, can I load it on another legally, since they have a free FTP install?  How free is Linux (notably SuSE's?)
