Thank you, Dylan. Great to hear that SuSE 9.1 is not as buggy as one
might get the impression of bu reading the many posting on the list.
Do you have any idea what the claim of buggt ext3 support was al
about. Was it just FUD or a man with a very special setup?

May I ask you: Have you done NTFS resize on any of the 20 machines you
set up sith SuSE 9.1?
