the neighbour(')s(') kids and tell them to try and install the latest
and greatest new version of Suse which is about to be foisted on the
great unwashed who will spend time (and money) downloading the thing and
becoming guinea pigs to be "gotcha"-ed by the little hidden "treasures"
inside the OS.

I don't see the issue... it's a Beta 1 release. If everything worked
perfectly in a Beta 1 release, it wouldn't be a Beta 1 release... it'd
be a formal release. If you're installing 10.2 Beta 1 expecting a
fully functioning release, you're in for a nasty shock. Yes, if
you're handing this release out to everyone, it's going to fail and
rather spectacularly too.

Did you read the info when you installed... it clearly stated it was a
Beta version :-)

Anyway... hang in there... Beta 2 is due out soon. Maybe the update
mechanism will be fixed with Beta 2
