welcome to the fold brother. i was like you as well. installing RPMs through YaST is fine, it is my exclusive way of doing it. for future reference you may also come across tar.bz2 which is unzipped withCode:
tar xjvf foo.tar.bz2Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?
