"Users of SuSE Linux 7.0 shouldn't have to think twice about upgrading to the newest release of SuSE Linux, version 7.1. SuSE Linux 7.1 Professional offers ease of use that rivals Mandrake 7.2, adds excellent configuration options, and--for good measure--tosses in a vast software catalog."

"Installation is easier than ever with SuSE's YaST2 (Yet Another Setup Tool). SuSE Linux 7.1 also improves on the processes used in version 7.0 for disk partitioning and initial configuration. We suggest that you turn off plug and play in your PC's BIOS before installing and be sure to back up any disks you're going to partition or install onto. In particular, if you're upgrading to SuSE 7.1 from version 7.0, be sure to save any special configuration files in case you encounter problems during the installation process."

"Performing a new installation of SuSE 7.1 is easy too, once you get past the process of configuring partitions for your hard drive. This procedure has been improved but still requires a working knowledge of boot sectors and file structures for dual-boot configurations. Installing onto a clean drive is the easiest solution."
