I'm not a Linux expert. I've installed RH and Mandrake before. But tonight I installed SuSE SPARC edition on my Sun E250. Wow. The Yast installer rocks. The E250 is headless (no video card) so I had to use a 9600bps serial connection to do the install (which was a first for me). Yast actually looked nice for being a text display. It was nice and easy. There was probably a communications issue which caused it to upchuck once, but otherwise it was easy to navigate and find all the packages I wanted installed. Once everything was installed, I went back and ran the Yast config tool. I was really bummed when it came up in a funky emulation that HyperTerminal and Telix couldn't figure out. Then I switched over to an SSH client and ran it from there and it was awesome. I'm really impressed. I think it only took me about 3 hours to do the install and config: Apache, Samba (including shares and users), a user or two, and network settings. That was one of the fastest Linux installs I've ever done before (typically I need to set aside a weekend to install and config). The installer itself has me sold... If any of you haven't played with SuSE yet, give it a whirl.
