hi i am reasonably new to linux. suse is my third distro and i think i will stick with it. the install was ok, sound and wireless worked with out any intervention on my behalf, but my problem lies in the yast installation source area. i need a few more bits and pieces to finish of the install, codecs mostly, but when i try to change the inst source to a server/mirror, any, i get a error msg saying 'unable to create installation source from url whatever'

You can add other repositories to YAST, mainly the PACKMAN one, from which you can download multimedia codecs :

i have tried this but i get the same error msg everytime i try to change it using the http, https, and specify url options, "unable to create installation source from url _____". I just cant add anything to the installation source list?

I was just doing a similar thing myself.. YAST is only trying to be helpful but it keeps adding http:// and / to everything you type in the address box.
in YAST - Installation Source
under Servername enter ONLY the server or domain name
no leading "http://" or any other "/"s
under Directory on server enter the directories WITHOUT any leading or trailing "/"
download/Compiz-Quinn/SUSE_Linux_10.1 = good :^)
/download/Compiz-Quinn/SUSE_Linux_10.1/ = baaad :^(
It may take a few goes so don't give up. When it tells go it's no good, look at the address to see what Yast has added.
(by the way, the above address gets you compiz-quinn if you're trying to configure Xgl)
