How do you feel about SuSE for small but complex servers like mine at 
home vs Red Hat?

As I've mentioned before, I've tried several older versions of SuSE, and 
was frustrated by things like a significant portion of the text in man 
pages and documentation and install screens were in German.  Is that still 
an issue?

Also, I despise YAST, and any configuration tools that are
database-driven, like Windows' registry.  Can one configure the system
manually without screwing up things?
