[SLE] Problems with 6.3 install

I tried using yast2, but apparently there is no way to tell it how you
want the partitions laid out, which I find hard to believe. I have an
IDE hard drive in the machine with Red Hat, and put in a new SCSI hard
drive to install Suse on. However, when I told it I wanted to install
Suse on sda1, with the intention of using the swap partition already
existing on hda4, it insisted on creating a swap partition on sda. I
could see no way of changing it.
When running yast during installation, I wish it told me what was
different about the package configurations. What is "Office server"?
There were so many packages selected it would not fit on my 2G drive. I
found it very hard to go in and out of the package lists deselecting
packages I didn't want, including some with German documentation.
When running yast after installation, I selected a Logitech mouse, and
checked ChordingEnabled. When I tried to startx, it told me that option
was only valid with the Microsoft protocol. So I went back in yast to
change it, but I kept getting the same error message.
I could not get dhclient talking to MediaOne RoadRunner (I have posted a
separate message on that). When in KDE, I brought up the dhcp
configuration (assuming I could configure the client there too). When I
pressed Help, I got the message "Cannot open
/opt/kde/share/doc/html/default/kcontrol/kcmdhcp/index.html." If so
many people had problems with it in 6.2, why did they include it in 6.3?
Cut and paste did not work in KDE. right-click and chording both
brought up a popup menu.
I'm not trying to be a crybaby, I would just like to know if I was doing
something wrong. Any advice?
