This will help us determine if this is a module install loading problem for
OpenSUSE.

=Comment: #4=================================================
PAVAN NAREGUNDI <pavan.naregundi@xxxxxxxxxx> -

Yes. I can see the menu items listed in above comment in SLES11 and opensuse
11.1. But not in
opensuse11.2 factory build.

===========================================================

Novell,
Please review why OpenSUSE 11.2 does not provide the option to load ppc
modules before installing.
Thanks!
