Damn, and that was from a well known "Guru" too... He had other suggestions as well, you could create your own directories and such, but really at this point I strongly (and sadly) suggest switching distros (if it's feasible). Even if we got this "licked" there's bound to be some other querks that you will run into due to the odd nature of doing things over at SuSE. If you don't want to switch for whatever reason (even if it's just to spite me ) I'll be happy to continue helping you with other suggestions that came with my reply from the Guru.



Cool

I'll just try another distribution once I get some more blank discs; any suggestions, Mandrake, Red Hat?

Slackware! I think you've had enough time with the n00b distros, you can safely jump into the dark world of Slack and in a short time have a great running system. If you aren't wanting to do that, out of the 2 you have up there I always say Mandrake. Works great for n00bs, comes default with ALSA, very easy to run server programs on, is very "standard" in placing scripts (even has a rc.local ) and also does a great job with dependencies using urpmi. And the best thing about Mandrake... I run it to help people. So when you get stuck I'll be happy to help out.

Cool

Good deal, the slackware forum is going to be your best friend for quite a while Don't get discouraged. 2 things you will run into very quickly; no sound, no X. Configure those 2 and you will be just about good to go.

Cool
