I will try to straighten this out and try it today (early morning on the left side of the big pond :-) Like I said, I'm sure it's something too simple. In my case I'm using the Autoyast with SLES10 sp2. These servers will get OES2 placed on top of most of them but since the OES2 config is relatively straightforward I am leaving that portion manual. I very much appreciate the patience of everyone on this list- everyone here is wonderful!

I've searched the official documentation as well as reading some other folks primers on Autoyast but I am missing something. Could someone look over this profile and help me find what I'm missing?
your path is wrong:
<ask-list config:type="list"> <ask> <path>networking,dns,hostname</path> <question>Enter Hostname (server name)</question> <stage>initial</stage> <default>enter your hostname here</default> </ask>
<ask> <path>networking,interfaces,interface,ipaddr</path> <question>Enter the primary IP Address:</question> <stage>initial</stage> <default>127.0.0.1</default> </ask>
that's wrong. <interfaces config:type="list"> is a list of <interface> elements. if you would just say (like you did): <path>networking,interfaces,interface,ipaddr</path> how should autoyast know which interface in the list of interfaces you mean? The first one? The second? The third? So you have to tell autoyast which element number in the list of <interfaces> you mean by: <path>networking,interfaces,0,ipaddr</path> if it's the first <interface> in the list of <interfaces> <path>networking,interfaces,2,ipaddr</path> if it's the third ... and so on ...
In your case you only have one <interface> in that list so it's obviously "0" but I think you can see the point.
btw, I don't know which version of SUSE Linux you use but <path> is deprecated with the latest versions and was replaced by <pathlist>. <path> still works but only because of compatibility code that might be removed in the future.
