Thanks, but neither idea worked (?!). I got the same
error message as before with RPM. With YaST and YaST2,
I got interesting displays that indicated something
was going on ("reading package information", for
instance), but the package was not installed.

I tried changing the source media again. Whether I
tried changing it to a local directory, a CD besides
the SuSE installation disks, or even the FTP site, I
got the same error:


This is amazing to me. I've changed media with past
versions of YaST (even using a floppy once) without
difficulty. This, by the way, was AFTER I did hwscan
--cdrom on the advice of the support site. (I'd burned
a CD after the initial install.)

Thanks again,
