Up-Grading from 10.1 to 11

I am using 10.1 now and the internet, connection is working OK. I have the SUSE 11 disk (out of the box). If I run the disk as "update" will I lose my data (Evolution E-mail, Pictures, Klinternet web access etc)?
I have a different 40gig disk, without klinternet installed,running suse 10.1 and I ran the suse 11 as "up-date", It ran OK but I could not set up "Klinternet" to connect to the internet ? I have a Zoom Modem on serial rS232. Not on a Network !! I tried To follow the book, but it told me to check chapter 14 ? "NO CHAPTER 14"

PS if I lose this I'm back to WinXP

Hi there,

I have never worked with Suse, but I believe there must be a way to update from 10.1 to 11, without having to run an installation CD.

Like I said, I'm a fan of redhat-fedora products. Therefore, you might have to adapt the commands to Suse. Boot up your machine. Once in the X window, launch a terminal. Get root access. Go to a Suse update repository, and download the newest version of the Suse 11 kernel (I would say in .rpm form). The next step is to install the kernel-something.rpm, using rpm, or yum (could be different in Suse). Once the kernel is installed, you can say that you have a Suse 11 version working. Make an upgrade of your system
yum -upgrade
You should be able to reboot your system in Suse 11, without any danger of losing any data.

Hope this helps.
