    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

    Suse9.3 is very good! I would recommend it to anyone -- especially those new to linux.

    Thanks for your fast response....
    I had a small problem installing packages, the box kept calling for a dev i could not and had not used. (cdrom). Source was on usb DVD external.
    I changed the old internal cdrom to a new double layer memorex and all works ok. (I had installed 10.1 using usb dvd).

    Long ago I used a SEL mainframe , using Unix, and programmed a lot on Fortran and RelBase. So I recntly (4-5 yrs ago ) started using Linux to get some of the feel of programming again.
    I found by lots of trial and error, and error, and error..... that its best to start with a clean Disk and let the system do its default partitioning and install.
    Later on I reinstalled and customized widely.
    Now, will try to add packages but was prevented by the DVD /cdrom probs.
    Again... thanks
