Hi again --

Well, after fumbling around quite a bit learning what SCPM does, I still
don't know where it stores its files or exactly at what it looks when
using the "typical" resource set, but it seems to work. I have three
profiles -- staticTP, staticWL, and dhcp -- to pick whether I'm at home
on my static IP address on eth0 (twisted pair) or [pcmcia] eth1 (wireless)
or using dhcp on anything available somewhere else. yast2 insists on
updating the hosts file AND ripping out old entries (it wouldn't be so
bad if it didn't do the latter) but I think I've managed to get all of
the versions all matched up.

Not bad at all, and probably easier and certainly more thorough than
writing my own scripts. Yay :-)
