My install problems were interesting indeed. First, I ran
into the reiserfs freeze-up problem. I've made a few other
11.0 reiserfs installs without issue, but this one bit me
in the nether regions. Must be something with the mobo or
cpu (Core 2 quad) configuration. The install would finish,
then freeze up after a variable amount of time. Then, the
on-board NIC (Realtek) was unreliable. At times it wouldn't
be seen by the install process, and when it did install it
would spin off billions of RX overrun and some read errors.
Readtek had an updated driver that I compiled in, but still
no joy. This wasn't a SuSE problem, Knoppix showed the same
symptoms. The fix for the NIC was to install a D-Link PCI-e x1
NIC and to ditch reiserfs in favor of ext3.

Hi, if your NIC used the r8169 driver, has a link to a patched 32 bit kernel that works. r8169 is eventually fixed in the 2.6.27.rc2 kernel, I don't know why the patched kernel hasn't found its way into 11.0 update yet.
