> I am relative newbie in linux playing field. I bought SUSE 6.1
Why didn't you buy SuSE 6.2?
It's very easy to install ever SuSE distro. I had some problems with SuSE
6.1 but 6.2 overcame all these issues.
I bought suse 6.1 a few days before 6.2 was announced. Wish i had waited.

You're more lucky than I was about year and a half ago.
I reinstalled SuSE 5.3 about ten times. The same luck I had with Red Hat but
this didn't stop me from learning Linux and particularly SuSE distro. Now
it's my favorite and only desktop OS.
Yes I guess i can be considered lucky. But with redhat 6.0 It worked the
first time in stalled it. Without any problems. I have kept up with linx
for past few months. before that i have tried and ran it on 386/25 with 8 MB
of ram. Until now i did not have time or enough time to try something new on
my machine, and since i have installed it on my computer, we have not booted
up to windows.

Could you please repost or send me your questions. May be the key is in
reading SuSE or general Linux documentation related to your questions. Did
you get any additional Linux books or manuals?
I'm also not always receiving ready answers on my questions posted on the
SuSE list. But it doesn't make me upset. When I find the answers by myself
it makes me stronger in understanding of Linux rather when I'm getting ready
answers on the plate with the blue rim.
Well it seems like for some reason the suse install has been hosed. And I
may have to install it when i go back home

These are normal things for beginner who came from M$ Winblows.

Why do you think that you won't have a problem with Red Hat?
Only because your brother knows this distro? But you are not him.
Even with Red Hat you'll have your personal learning curve.
Well because for one reason that i have ran redhat on the same system
before. And we did NOT have same problems on there as we did on here. And he
does not know any disto better than other, he just learns by himself, from
the web, just like i do but he has more time and i do not. And from what he
told me, it was easier for him to configure RedHat then it was to configure

Because your brother said so?!
All Linux diostributions in general are the same, they are using the same
kernel. I don't know what to fight here about.
RH or SuSE? It's just a matter of your personal choice.
No not because my brother said so, but because we had more problems with
suse than we had with RH.
May be you just a whiner?
I don't think i am a whiner, I am willing to read, research and follow up on
task i have to do in order to get things done. But if i can't get anyone to
even acknowledge that if it is a normal problem or they ahve seen something
similar else where, it's hard for me to start solving problem
