There's download and "install" evaluation versions on
the SuSE site.
What's the score with them?

This is exactly what I need. I'm hoping for an easy

Yahoo! Messenger - NEW crystal clear PC to PC calling worldwide with voicemail http://uk.messenger.yahoo.com
Having fixed our mail server I have now hit a second problem!
Most of our linux servers are running suse 9.1, though our intranet
is still on 8.2.
Since upgrading our windows servers to windows 2003 SP1 I have found
that I need samba 3.0.14a and Heimdal kerberos 0.6 (I think)
The samba rpms are available for 8.2 but kerberos is proving elusive.
I want to try to avoid having to install gcc et all and compile from
scratch, does anyone know of a rpm that would work? Could the 9.0/9.1
one work on 8.2?
I need to configure a firewall machine to link some laptops to a
network, I am not allowed to alter any settings on the laptops, but will
divert all outgoing port 25 connections to our mail server.
transparently proxy http & https trafic to be routed through an external
proxy server. (this is the only way past a external firewall.)
Can anyone suggest a good starting point preferably using suse 9.1?
Can I acheve redirection of the https traffic?
port 25 should just be a iprule command but the proxying is stumping me
at the moment.
I rebooted our mail server this evening to find that it failed to reboot.
I get the grub loader followed by
This is on a suse 9.1 box,running the latest suse kernel.
I have booted from the suse disks and can mount the drive from rescue
mode, all looks ok to the untrained eye!
My guess is that a kernel update has gone wrong at some point, and the
reboot has found it, question is how do I recover from this?
(I could really do with avoiding a full rebuild from scratch, the reboot
was to start a backup of our new dns settings!)

We do the same here. We are connected via the county, so our proxy's
extenal I/F has a private IP address in the same range as our router. The
county host our domain address and then their DNS forwards onto us. We also
only hold internal addresses in our DNS, and all others are passed onto the
county's DNS servers for resolution.
Thanks - Clear now. :-)
Is the evaluation version limited in some way?
I stopped using SuSE as I was buying every new
version... (from 6.4 to 9). I want the latest stuff,
so looked elsewhere for a distro. I should perhaps
just install it via ftp, but iso's are easier to give
to friends, install at your folks house etc etc...
What's the score with the evaluation isos?
