Is kerner 2.6.4-54.5-default what comes with SuSE 9.1 Pro as standard? (ie.:
this is a out of the box desciption; you haven't been playing with your own

from USB)?

What is a UUID? I am new to VmWare; still waiting for the box to arrive and
finding time to install it.

I need USB. Does it work 100% running VmWare 4.5 on SuSE 9.0? Any idea when
VmWare will release a revision with official support for SuSE 9.1 as host OS?
