Testing a SUSE Linux 10 connection

Once SUSE Linux 10 is installed, the Linux enterprise system now gives you the opportunity to check for service updates right away.

Taking a page from the "other" operating systems, SUSE Linux 10 now enables you to run the update service as soon as the system has been installed (see Figure 1-26). Online updates are discussed in more detail in Chapter 9 and are not discussed here as part of our sample installation. If you are feeling adventurous, then testing your Internet connection and running the online update is a good idea, but it is not necessary as part of the installation process. Click Next after you have made your choice.
