I did it! I installed SUSE 10.0 and everything went very smooth. After the install, the system automatically looked for updates, but failed during the Open Office update. I am a newbee here, and nothing sticks out at me that indicates "Updates found here." I did visit the novell site (Where I started my quest and downloaded Linux) and nothing stood out there either. I'm still searching, but if anyone has a quick solution please let me know.

Also, suggestions on the good stuff like virus protection, anti-spyware items, etc...

Thanks!

I am a fairly new Linux user so you can take this with a grain of salt, but it seems to me that Linux has no use for antispyware and virus scanners since spyware and viruses for Linux are virtually nonexistant. As for the updates, I'm not sure. Good luck. Linux is so much better than Windows when you finally get the hang of it. You'll enjoy it.

Hi street9009,

I have enjoyed my short time using SUSE. As I play with it, I am sure that things will become clearer. My next tasks are to make Evolution work with my Groupwise account. Over all, I am pleased.

Take care,

Rigel
