This page is dedicated to making your openSUSE experience a little better.
I will continue to update this page as:
- Folks send in or post tips. Please send them in!
- I find tips somewhere else.
- I write tips myself.
Please keep in mind that I do not use and have no interest in any other desktop than KDE.

This article will show you how to network openSUSE 12.3 with Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.
It is assumed that you are using the openSUSE default desktop, KDE4 (you’ll need Samba client/server installed).
Any Windows machines should NOT be using the HomeGroup option but instead use the advanced sharing option.
How to share Windows files is not covered. If you can’t do that, well, Linux may be out of your league ;)
This article applies to workgroups only, not domains.
This guide will show you how I dual-boot and multi-boot openSUSE 12.3 with Windows 7 and/or Windows 8.
The method I use keeps Windows in charge of the boot process. To achieve this I use a program called EasyBCD.
