I've found YOU, and the install/delete package (from the installation
source) in YAST2. In Yast1, I could select install packages, and it
would ask for a location. I've searched high and low for this same
feature in Yast2 and have yet to find it. What am I missing?

use the yast2 module in section software called "change source of
installation". sounds obvious, almost? ;-)

When I do that and type in /home/michael/rpms it tells me there are no installation media can be found. Yast1 always finds it. Am I doing something wrong ? The directory is where I put downloaded rpms.

Okay, I thought you're talking about the installation cd's or as install. source for packages of the distribution. yast2 only works on a full install. tree incl. all those helper files that you find on cd, where yast(2) gets its ino from. It doesn't work for indiviudual packages.

look at, there's an article for how to install packages in suse linux. I just found it when I checked for all articles for SL 8.0. Basically, use e.g. kpackage or just plain "rpm"...
