User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.2.10)
Gecko/20100914 SUSE/3.6.10-0.3.1 Firefox/3.6.10

SUSE was the first linux distro i was ever exposed to. the installation was on
a bunch of CDroms. when installing things for this 11.3 version, i dont see
some of the packages i selected in the CD distro - namely GAMES. im sure there
could also be some useful utilities that i am missing out on. now i know that
you have probably tried to cram it all into a dvd, so you have had to drop some
stuff.

why isnt the packages still available on the online repositories? these options
should be available to anyone who chooses to see what things they could add to
their installation from the internet, rather than those who may know what
distro it was distributed with. if you want to name for me a certain
repository, then why not have it placed in the distro sources when SUSE is
installed so the user does not have to hunt for it?

thanks for the help!
Charlie.
