Should be pretty simple if you:

1) Boot into runlevel 3 (put a 3 on the boot parm line)

2) Run sax2 -l (small l) once you get to command level

3) Configure the new card with Sax2 and let'r rip.

Another possibility that might be better is to boot into level 3 and run Yast
from the command line and do the whole thing from there.... Would be better
I think.

Others may have better ideas.
