    Default Newbie Question

    I am new to openSUSE, I have 11.3 KDE and I want to update to 11.4 KDE but I do not have a CD or DVD drive and my flash drive is to small, its an oldie. How do I do it through the OS without breaking the OS. Can someone tell me step by step how to, I have no idea what to do all of this stuff confuses me!
    Thanks so much!

    suggest you continue using 11.3 for a few months....it is a great
    system and is more stable and less trouble prone than 11.4 (look around)

    use that time to become more familiar with openSUSE and Linux in
    general...let the more experienced suffer with the growing
    pains....then when there have been several rounds of bug fixing rolled
    into the code, THEN upgrade...

    between now and then you might even find the two different methods to
    upgrade...both are written down and easy to follow...and, no one has
    to type them into a forum post just for you....

    oh, and you also get to have more time to un-confuse yourself by
    learning .... how does that sound?
