The one thing I remember is that if you don't want to learn the SuSE way
for editing the various startup/config scripts (like you might have done
in RH/Fedora) then you should either edit the scripts exclusively or use
their GUI tools exclusively.  Mixing the two methods was painful
(because I didn't take the time to learn how SuSE was doing everything
with SuSEconfig).

I suspect SuSE's KDE implementation is a whale of a lot better than the
one on RH4 (which is pain in a multi-user environment and they don't
seem to care).
