Software RAID1 on SuSE 8.1 wont boot. The solution works with SuSE8.1, but will probably fit any other LINUX distributions. Look at my lilo.conf.
The problem is that lilo wont write the correct MBR with the standard lilo.conf made by YAST. If you add the parameter 'raid-extra-boot = /dev/hdx,/dev/hdy' (Insert the correct device names) then lilo will write the MBR as you want.
To start your RAID1 after you se the error : Insert CD1, accept whatever language, choose 'boot installed OS', after booting your system : edit /etc/lilo.conf as descriped, run lilo -- boot the box, be happy.>br> If you use anthother LINUX dist, use whatever boot tool you got and start from 'edit /etc/lilo.conf'.
It wont work with lilo version less than 22 !.

PPPD with auto dial.Why fight diald when you can use pppd for automatic dial up connections. The solution works with SuSE 6.4, but can easely fit later/other distributions. You will find the files you need here .

Installing SuSE 7.3 on Dell Inspiron 8000 with Nvidia Geforce 2 Go.
Read this and concentrate at the SuSE section. You can get my XF86Config file, it will work with both the external PS2 mouse and the build in touch pad.

Dell Inspiron 8000 with SuSE 7.3 hangs up when removing or connecting AC power . (The quick solution.)
Get the 2.4.16 kernel from SuSE , and your problem ends. There's a bug/feature in SuSE kernel 2.4.10 so it won't work in your Inspiron 8000.

Dell Inspiron 8000 with Level One WPC-0100 11Mbps Wireless PCMCIA adapter and SuSE 7.3.
The files you need to tamper are placed in /etc/pcmcia/ . Make sure you have installeded these packages: pcmcia, pcmcia-cardinfo and wireless-tools !
In the default SuSE 7.3 installation cardmgr wil try to load the orinoco_cs module, but you need the wvlan_cs for your WPC-0100.
If you don't have any pc-cards using the orinoco_cs module the quick and dirty way is to rename the /etc/pcmcia/orinoco_cs.conf to something not ending at .conf.
There's a reference to *.conf files in /etc/pcmcia/config so by this way you wont brake anything not using the orinoco_cs module. Do you have a pc-card
using the orinoco_cs module then you have to uncomment the reference to your card in /etc/pcmcia/orinoco_cs.conf.
But beware, you are not trough yet.
/etc/pcmcia/config.opts have a section for the wvlan_cs module. Chose the one prober for you.

If anyone out there finds out to pass the rate option to the module when inserting the card, then don't hesitate to send me a mail ;-)

You can play around with iwconfig, iwspy and iwpriv from the wireless-tools package and find usefull info about the wlan's in your area.
