There is a file called ARCHIVES on one of the CDROMS in SUSE which is
like a "rpm -qli all" which is a listing with description of all
packages on all 6 SUSE disks.

Its so useful I copied Jilla nd I to our local directory. Now we just
grep in there 1st and it tells us on what CD and in what directory a
file is. You can search for any lieky word in its description.
