You can buy the Upgrade version which comes with the 6 CD's and the
DVD for a cheaper price...but it doesn't come with a book of close
to the same info that your 6.4 book had. I would suggest this route.

-->>What are you guys talking about? SuSE Linux 6.4 was retailed at $49.99 (of

-->>Linux 7.0 Professional is retailed at $59.99 a whole ten dollars more. Not

-->7.0 Deluxe at 59.99 from www.chumbo.com for what is basicly similar to the
