In Carl's defense, let me say that it is good to have input from several
different sources, on several different methods.
It' true that I still depend on the YaST tool a lot, but I am trying to
learn scripting, so all the info I've seen in this discussion will be a
help to me in one way or another.
Even when two people say the same thing, I will understand one better,
so please don't discourage anyone from telling what they know.

Thanks All,
