Yes, but I bought the 9.0 upgrage as we talked about.

I just went out and go a full 9.0 professional from Microcenter for 
$80 for expediency.  If I can't get that installed and mail working in
one night, then I'm giving up on Suse for good.  If it works then I will
chalk it up to something I did wrong in the first install.  But the fact
that I could not install almost all of the non-Suse things I wanted to install
does not bode well.

Top of that list is the most recent "gaim", because the one that comes with 
Suse will no longer work with Yahoo since they changed formats.  Even tried
build the SRPM myself, but there were too many dependencies, some of which
would not install.
