What does 'Clone system for autoyast' do for me during installation?

It creates a control file for autoyast so that you can clone the system.
For a normal user, it's probably not much use, unless at some point in
time you have a hard drive crash and/or just want to revert to the point
of having freshly installed the system.
For corporate users, or those installing on multiple systems, it makes
it much easier to make sure the systems have an identical installation.
Also, using autoyast to perform the installation could possibly be
quicker than using something that creates and restores drive images.

It is a similar installation. Identical would be using e.g. images. The
advantage of using YaST over images is that even if you have different
PC's (e.g. portables, Dells, HPs, different amount of HD, memory,
graphic card) it will try to install as much the same software as
However this can change due to hardware specifications. e.g. if your HD
is not big enough, it will pick some software NOT to install. You could
have a different videocard or even mouse. That will be coverd as well.
So if you have identical systems, a immage might be more interesting. If
you have systems that you want to behave the same, but are different in
hardware, then the YaST way will be best.
