Nando- I hope you don't mind that I cc'd this to the list -- I just 
couldn't resist.  Also, I am hoping that the next guy sees this email 
and finds the answer, rather that emailing more people for help (when 
the answer is in front of him).

why not?  cvs does not require a fast connection

There are snapshots, but AFAIK, they will not work with the tree-merging 
scripts...  Why not just follow directions?

K.I.S.S. - (keep it short & simple)  ... it actually means (keep it 
simple, stupid) but I think that isnt very nice ;-)

I dont use SuSE, but maybe others do... Sending the email to me 
privately will get you an answer like this one.  Sending publicly on the 
list might get you some other answers, but I would try this first.

Nobody likes answering questions that you can answer yourself (with 
google, or) by trying the recommended method.

Good Luck,
