Absolutely - but it sounded as though you were waiting *because* 9.1
will dual-boot with XP, so I thought I'd mention that it dual boots fine
with 9.0.  I guess I read that wrong?  For some reason, I think only one
(one!) retail store carries SuSE here (probably because they don't
market a Japanese-language container) - that being... um... what's that
name again?  Um... Plat'home or something?  In Akihabara.  Wait -
Google... here it is:


I just called them and they confirmed that they have SuSE 9.0
Professional in stock now and that 9.1 is probably coming out at the end
of next month?  Anyway, I'm looking forward to hearing how it goes for
you since I'm also a SuSE user.  What's the difference between 9.0 and
9.1?  (I've been updating 9.0 as new bits come out.)

The name Patthome seems to be based on "platform" "form" - "homu" - "home"
