Hi guys,

I am a two-week old newbie who started out with Mandrake 10.1. I
almost gave up on Linux because nothing worked like the
documentation said it should. Well, almost nothing. An old-timer
(compared to my newbie status) on the MDK list wrote me privately
and suggested I give Suse a try because "they don't seem to break
what they once fixed in a prior version." I think this suse 9.2 is
tremendous compared to what I was using. Just my two cents.

I could accept the user related guess if I and many others were
newbies. I started with Linux since the first kernel was put up
for ftp by Linus, I've built my own versions, installed MCC, SLS
and distros right up to the present SuSE9.2, Mandrake 10.1, gentoo
- x86, x86_64 and versions on a Sun E3500 and S/390 mainframes,
but none gave the trouble of 9.2 on x86 and x86_64. There was one
P-II/333 laptop where it installed without a hitch. There is
something not quite right with 9.2 and I can bet that if you had 2
more boxes to install it on, you'd run into problems. If I only
had the laptop to install it on, I'd also wonder what all the talk
has been about.
