I had a hard drive die on one of my machines. While I was
using it too, which is a real bother. Luckily it was my
home openSUSE installation.

At work today I downloaded the Live CD version of 10.3 and
tonight I installed a new hard drive and loaded the Live CD.

The installation went very smoothly but the "update" process
took a long long time.

I wonder why openSUSE does not update the downloadable CD and
DVD live versions every so often. It should not be too hard
to do and it would make folks new to openSUSE (and the repos)
much happier.
