I have seen some comments in other places that people had some problems
with such DVDs when registering 10.1 (comment: although no personal data
is submitted in this registration process, I again think that this is
step in the wrong direction!). Do you know about any such problems? It
seems as if a string 'SUSE-Linux-10.1-Add-on' is submitted and this
leads to a "No products to register" on the server side...
