Dropped YAST going SMART

I've been trying to setup SuSE 10.1 on my laptop and finally got tired of trying to get YAST Software Update to work. I finally gave in and switched to SMART. Here are a few things I do to set it up:
  • Follow these directions to setup SMART
  • Note when installing SMART answer Y to all repositories (channels). The risky ones are marked inactive. If you don't say yes to them it is tough finding the repositories to add later.
  • Next before you do a major update (like update all) make sure you configure mirrors for, (Guru) and (Packman)
