Inspiron 1000 install problem (11.1, 11.2, net install, dvd install)
Ok, I have a plain jane Inspiron 1000, 2ghz celeron, 256m ram, 40gig hd,
I burned 11.2 to dvd, 11.1 to dvd, tried installing both. Both get the
dreaded "cannot create repository" (i'm paraphrasing). No problem, I
download and burn 11.1, 11.2 net install's, checksums check out ok. I
go through the first part where it downloads stuff from
download.opensuse.com (or something similiar), then it fails again, not
able to install.
I get no message on the net installs. Just fails real quick with a red
box. I tried a text install, fails.

This is more an annoyance and wanting to learn from my mistake that a
"production problem" per se. 2 or 3 weeks ago I downloaded and burned
the openSuSE 11.1 32 bit x86 iso. Last night I installed it; a fresh
install on a machine that had formerly been running openSuSE 9.x or
10.x. During installation I cherry picked what apps & services I
wanted... the machine is to be a firewall with minimal services running.
I was surprised when the installation completed to see it's running
11.2, Milestone 4.

I loaded opensuse 11.1 RC1 live CD last night to see how it worked. I
got stuck configuring the network card. It seemed that the network
switch was off and wouldn't turn on so that even though the firmware was
installed I couldn't get past that issue. So I decided to go ahead and
install a second copy of opensuse on the machine, so that I would be
about to reconfigure and reboot.

Deleted my ati drivers accidently during a botched upgrade. Have been
trying to fix the problem from things I read on here, made a thread but
can't get online to execute it.Found my install dvd tried running repair
and in the process deleted my windows partition(anyway to get that
back?) and still no previous ati drivers or gnome installed.
So my question is how do I install ati drivers from the dvd and how do

It hasn't been long since I'm on version 11 (because it took long to fix
some major issues I had with) and now that version 11.1 is out, I really
don't want to do a full install.
Good thing I noticed there is an 'upgrade' option on the install DVD.
I'm not sure what will happen though, so I had a few questions. If you
know the answer to any number of these, please reply:
1 - What's being upgraded?
2 - Will all the packages I have installed be upgraded?
3 - Is it a side-by-side install, keep the old and get the new?
4 - What about the ones I did NOT in...
