Fresh SuSE installed - couple of questions


ok, i had 5 SuSE 8.2 CDs. for the installation, i used the 1st at start, then the 2nd, and now i have my SuSE linux working.
but, what about the other 3 CD's ?!!??!
i guess i have lots of important and less important packages there.
the setup DID NOT installed GNOME by default, and im sure that i have it on one of the CDs.
is there an option on SuSE to install from the other CDs? (3, 4, and 5)
thx.

Yes, open Yast, go to Install Remove Software, and search for Gnome. Accept the packages suggested, and it will ask for you CDs as they are needed. You really need to read SuSE's docs, because Yast is the essential tool in any SuSE installation.

To (un)install software under linux using the suse tools:

Start YaST2 (type yast or yast2, no capitals).

With this tool you can add/delete components, check/change settings, backup/reinstall etc etc.

When installing software, you don't need to be concerned about the cd's, yast will ask a specific cd if needed.

Yast will try to check if certain programs conflict with others or if programs need others (dependicies). Yast will ask you if it cannot self decide what choice to make.

select all the boxes in the left frame from within yast install/remove software (all of kde, gnome, docs, development, advanced development, tcl/tk development etc.)
