Post-install question


Okay, so I have SuSE 7.3 sitting in front of me, and I'm reading through the install manual before I actually start installing...I don't want to be surprised. My question has to do with the included packages. Let's say I don't pick the Java SDK or AIM to install (or load, or whatever it is in linux) upon my install (that's confusing, but I think you get what I mean). Can I go back and install those packages later on if I decide I need/want them? Would I just use YaST 2 for that? Also, just a side note...is Gnome automatically installed in SuSE? Can I do it manually later? Thanks yet again for your patience.

To basically answer all your questions, Yes. You can install anything you don't install on the first install later on if you need them.
