That should be easy ..
manual config is trivial to the point of being a nobrainer
(add /sbin/modprobe ide-scsi to a relevant init.d file
add hdX=ide-scsi to the relevant spot in /etc/lilo.conf
rerun lilo, reboot)

Printing is still a bit awkward

I think Sax/Sax2 doesn an excellent job.
sax/sax2 works in more cases than autoXconfig.
autoXconfig will have to second guess you on several issues (3D
acceleration ? XF3 vs XF4 ? default resolution ?
and what do you do if your monitor lies about it's capabilities.

Sax2 w/ sensible defaults would be nice though.

a diald that does add defaultroute.
For some reason suses diald is slightly modified and doesn;t do the trick
for me. Apparen tly the vanilla diald does work correctly ...

and of course:
- latest mkreiserfs utilities (require 2.4 kernel) so that I can create a
resier fs that can handle files > 2G
- XFS/ext3
