I got the "Red Screen of Death" when installing 6.4 just
because my modem was turned on. In 7.0 the install went
great until the end when you can configure the printer/modem/etc.
I chose to configure the modem, and CRASH..... A RE-BOOT !!!
I thought I was using W98 again <shutter>.....
I had to pull the plug on my modem and try again (no switch
on modem). YAST under the ppp tools has no problem configuring
my modem. Just have install problems with the YAST2.
