The layout of the /etc directory is one of the things that changed between
7.x and 8.0 because of an increased LSB complience, the /etc/rc.config
concept has been dropped in favor of several files placed in /etc/sysconfig
(I think that's the directory's name.) This is probably why they dropped
Yast1, the new configuration file format would have needed a rewrite of much
of the program. So I wouldn't reccomend copying over the /etc/ directory...
