  SuSE Linux Professional 8.2 Review

Linux Journal reviews SuSE Linux Professional 8.2.

"YaST 2, SuSE's second-generation setup tool, is a total dream. (Keep in mind this is a Debian fan talking here.) The software installer looks very much like the install screen and shows you which CDs you need to use and for how long; I imagine it's much of the same code. The system tool lets you do everything from edit /etc/sysconfig files to back up the system. The firewall tool, under Security, allows for some fairly advanced configuration, including DMZ and IP masquerade, right there under the GUI. I could go on about this, but it's getting long already. Oh, and if you're shelling in on a slow modem from Timbuktu, you should know that YaST 2 works in text mode, too. "
