    Do you want to update the existing system or do you want to do a fresh
    install with your user files left intact?
    The first step is simply download the DVD from here (choose the apropriate
    architecture 32 or 64bit)

    Hi,

    You mean you have an openSUSE 10.3 already installed on your system ?

    Thank you Daax,
    Yes I have, but I have a lot of problems too. I cant see videos and so and so. I was with Windows Xp and did have a krach. I think it's the moment to see if Linux is a solution. I Hope it's a good choice.

    Just download the DVD and boot on it.

    *** Don't forget to save all your data before upgrading. ***

    When the installer suggest you how to setup your partitions, choose custom partitions and set your root partition the one used by the 10.3 and your /home folder. But DON'T chose to format yur /home if you to keep your data.

    Upgrading 10.3 to 11.4 is possible but not a task for a newbie.

    The only viable method is the DVD upgrade, the jump is too long. Better do
    a full backup and install again, then restore your personal files. Easier
    if you have a separate /home partition.

    In my experience, it works better if you copy your existing installation
    to new partitiion(s) and do the upgrade install with formats on the top of
    the new copy. Settings for older versions have a track record with me of
    causing problems. My oldest openSuse is 7.3, my oldest in use is 10.3.

    I never format data partitions, unless I need a new version of the format,
    improvements.

    I have an old system (I think it still works) with 6.4 :-)

    The next one runs 7.3, upgraded in steps from 5.3, I think. Then there is
    another with 11.2, upgraded in steps from 8.2, inherited from 7.3. Data
    partitions untouched, except when there were changes.
