<snip> Yup, good old Digital River strikes again.. I had hoped Novell
would get a company to do this type of thing other than them. ( Digital
River) As long as I can remember getting an order, much less a pre
order page that works as one assumes it would be intended has been an a
way to check one's sanity or the control one might have which keeps one
from screaming and throwing anything to hand !

Novell's own pages aren't exactly pretty to see, but they do , usually,
do the job , you get whatever information you expect.. excluding the
recent mislabelling of the link to order the 10.1 box. ( as 10.0 , in
the event they have fixed the link label by now)
