Thanks, yes its the DVD from linux-magazine.com. I've since upgraded to 

Whilst the Suse installation process is as smooth as it can get, it is 
unfortunately pretty rough around the edges when it comes to installing 
packages using YaST2. Many packages are missing, some packages don't come 
with their *-devel companions and some don't even exist requiring building 
from sources.

I installed and tested GNU Radio on RH9, FC4 and Suse 10.0/10.1b6. FC4 sofar 
delivered the best results for me. However, none of the Linux distributions 
offered me the ease of installing GNU Radio that comes with pkgsrc. Its most 
definitely not an automated process and a big stumbling block for newcomers.

Next I will try to bootstrap pkgsrc on Suse and try installing GNU Radio from 
there. Another interesting exercise would be to use LINUX XEN0 to run a 
NetBSD XENU domain and run the NetBSD binaries for GNU Radio.

cheerio Berndt
