While I've been doing my research on the right Linux distro for myself. I've heard quite a few disadvantages of SuSE (such as limited control over the system, and only though YaST).
Is there anything like that and what are the other disadvantages?

You can use any configuration tool you like in SuSE, it's just easier to use YaST. You can still configure KDE using the KDE Control Center, and you can still install/remove/update your software using other package managers like RPM/Apt/Yum. If someone told you otherwise, they're misinformed.Registered Linux user #270181

Suse 9.2 Boxed DVD and CDs MD5SUMs ?
I am NEW B to linux. Suse 9.2 is first purchased distro, but I bought the "student" version of Suse 9.2 direct from ShopNovell site for my son.
I am disappointed in this software and am wondering if the student version has different CDs from the full priced 9.2 set? Can anyone provide the MD5SUMs for the CDs that come in the Suse 9.2 box set so I can compare.
Too many things are broken.... monitor only comes up in 600 X 800;
mozilla email won't allow you to enter email addresses as the box is too big for the screen and can't be resized. Having difficulty with playing CD music.
Sound works for web sites but not from CD.
Then tried to use Evolution and the font size stays the same when isntructed to change it.
Tried to use YAST to remove software and it isn't removed.
Have reloaded from scratch and still same problems.
Anyway, would like to know the MD5SUM for the 5 CDs in the Suse 9.2 boxed set so I can check mine.

As a former SuSE user I can only say that while SuSE has made a great effort to develop a wonderful configuration tool like Yast, in no way does SuSE restrict or limit the the user to 'have' to use it. There are plenty of confiuration tools that you can use to fiddle with SuSE and all of them work just fine.
