I just attempted to install SuSE 9.1 on my new Dell Inspiron 1000 laptop.
When I got to the point of trying to resize the Windows partition (NTFS), I
was prevented from doing so because it was mounted. So I removed the mount
point and tried again. This time the resize operation did nothing -- no
response when I pressed Alt-S. So I tried using a custom partition, and I
got a message to the effect that this type of Windows partition could not be
The odd thing here is that several people reported in an earlier thread on
this subject that they succeeded in resizing the NTFS partition. So I'm
wondering why I got a different result than they did.
Fortunately I have a way around it by using Partition Manager, but it would be
nice if I could use the provided SuSE tools without having to resort to that.
After searching the archives going back six months I have not been able
to find much using "wireless" as the search string.
I am contemplating buying a wireless router and pcmcia adapter for my
laptop and would like to have any recommendations as to what to buy. I
currently use a Linksys router and have never had problems and may want
to stay with the same brand but a change is not out of the question.

There doesn't have to be 15-20 mail with 'test' or 'is the list down'
There is an archive at lists.suse.com/archive. If there hasn't been a new
entry there, odds are the list is down.
There is a test list, which you can subscribe to at
test-list-subscribe(a)suse.com - if you can't, odds are the list server is
malfunctioning, or you will get an error message explaining what the problem
There is an admin, who doesn't always monitor this list, but whom you can make
aware of any problems at suse-linux-e-owner(a)suse.com, assuming it's a local
suse-linux-e problem, or ml-admin(a)suse.com if it's a general list server
Yast2:Hardware|Printer just hangs after 50% of "Loading current settings"
Any idea how I can fix this? Not very nice when system config tools hang.

I'm trying to install 9.2 on an older machine that doesn't have a cdrom drive so I downloaded the floppy boot disks and module disks from the suse ftp site. In ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/9.2 I only see bootdisk1 bootdisk2 and bootdisk3 Every time I try to install I get to a certain point that asks me for bootdisk4. I've tried 1, 2, and 3 at this point and also the module disks to no avail. I googled and found absolutely nothing helpful.
Has anyone seen this silliness?
