Hi Garry,

SuSE ain't all that. Try using something like wget to capture all the packages, and then do the install from your local hard drive. It might be a little easier that way than doing the FTP install.

GT I.N.C., the title of your post really made me laugh!

I saw in the posts:

X Windows crashed!
PHP Problem. Help!

Where's my partitions gone?

Being in australia really can't be that much of a problem. My mate is over here in the UK from Melbourne and thinks it's winter and all the girls are too fat!

No offence meant GT I.N.C.!

I'll swap my cable modem and house in industrial Birmingham, UK for a dialup modem in Sydney anyday, that's all
