Good deal. I've now have it on 3 machines and I have run into some problems,
but I am getting them licked. In my server machine, I have the usual two
NIC's and it seems that at one point I had swapped the configuration for
them. One uses dhcp from a router for its IP address and the other is
static. Quite often after I would boot, the LAN NIC would not be usable and
I finally tracked it down to an added route line where was going
to each of the NICs!! Took me awhile to figure out where that was coming
from but there was old info left in
the /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth-xxxxxxx file for the dhcp NIC. It
still had it's static IP information and that was setting the pointer to the
LAN when it shouldn't have pointed to anything.

I wrote that one up as my first ever bug submitted to SuSE in abvout 7 years.

Not really.... I had about 100 messages in the queue today after not being
near the computer for about 8 hrs.
