Re: [SLE] Problems with 6.3 install

I did the installation in an extraordinarily boneheaded way that seems to
have worked. Since there appears to be no way to avoid YAST2 if you boot
the CD, and since YAST2 looked suspiciously as though it was about to nuke
everything in my 6.2 installation, I booted from the 6.2 CD and let
regular YAST load, then swapped the 6.3 CD in and did a routine
YAST package upgrade. I later had to reconfigure my network card by hand,
but 6.3 seems now to be working flawlessly.
