Mantra: I am a suse newbie. I probably have missed something that will make your' and my life vastly simpler.

Onto the question-(s)
Is their something better than yast for package management, and a good starting rescource for suse n00bs? I have used smartpm-but only briefly. I am not entirely sure how to best form my concern. I have used smartpm and it seems to be a little more er--gracefull about going about things, than yast (The silly thing doesn't seem to understand theirs a reason I have 3 or 4 mirrors listed.)

Might someone comment as to if that's actually the case? Is it "better"?

Is their a 'best practices' guide?
For instance Ubuntuu has ubuntufaqs and Ubuntuguide.

for SUSE, YaST is the best you're going to get. Basically because it is well supported.

SUSE does seem to lack that newbie resources that Ubuntu and fedora and so on have. However - has quite good documentation and support database for most things you'd want to do.
