Firstly let me apologise for posting this in a second forum but I am getting the impression that posting it in the Linux-Distributions forum was not the right thing to do initially.
Secondly I got the Live Evaluation to see whether I would want to have Linux as a secondary OS next to XP. I am however concerned by some things which I am not sure are restricted to the Live Evaluation copy or are problems that would afflict me if i got a "full version" of Linux.
Can't open CD-RW
I am able to access the CD-RW drive (i can see the SuSE Live Evaluation files when I click on the drive). However when I press the eject button the drive the drive doesn't open. When I right click on the drive and use the eject function, the following error
I suppect that because this is the Live Evaluation model it won't allow me to take the CD out of the CD-R drive.
Modem and Internet Connection
The modem I have is recognised as a SG Thompson. I downloaded a rpm file from the manufacturers website. However I am informed that the file var/lib/packages.rpm is read only (there might be another directory after lib). As root user I cannot change the current settings on the file. This also leads me to believe that there is restricted functionality as a result of this being a Live Evaluation version. The logfile
from KInternet is included.
BTW, I can't remember where to find the Query Modem function. Could someone direct me as I would like to add that as well as the startup log.
