better use /etc/permissions.local for that, since it will all be gone
with the next update. You realy get me searching now. ;-)

I got problems finding my way through the system in terms of "where is
ServerRoot "/usr/local/httpd/htdocs"
all dirs up to that 755

there is a symlink "doc". it's a relative link to /usr/doc (that too
755) I'd say all dirs below that to 755, all files to 644. Sadly there
are a few symlinks again, I did no clean install but an update.
Digging through my system I vague remember that the location of
documents changed from /usr/doc to /usr/share/doc. Under that, I find
the susehelp system, but I do not find the link to it. The links are
displayed in the browsers status line. In your situation, I'd try to
find the first breaking link and compare it with the real position and
permits. It could also be a symlink that points nowhere.

As you see, I am as confused as I sound above, but I am left with a
working system.

Is it in your manpath???

I had some other faults. Did a fresh install on my laptop and was
impressed how good it went. No serious or remembereable problems there.
The help system looks working. I might be wrong with my idea of
