Are u trying to say that in Windows u get help easily? FAR FROM IT. Its far easier & more likely to get help in linux than in windows. I believe its just a coincidence that u didn't get help this time....maybe the ppl here didnt have any solution. I know how notoriously difficult it is to get help with windows...most ppl end up calling the expert and paying for it!
Btw why dont u reinstall Suse? If everything works fine in it? Did u lose the CDs?
Windows is not too bad either
if things work fine in it. I dual-boot.
