Thanks. Actually, what I was looking for was whether there were
procedures within suse to tell it that the device will no longer exist
in the system. Physically removing the hardware as you described, I
can do. :-)

You could run Yast2, Hardware, Hardware Information, which causes it to
rescan all your hardware and possibly get rid of left over info
regarding the removed hardware.

That's a good tidbit to know. I appreciate you and everyone else chiming in
with the good advice.

As it turns out, unlike my 9.3 days, this was a non-event. Computer
didn't balk at all. :-)

Thanks all!
