SUSE driver pack for windows

Novell released the "SUSE Linux Enterprise Virtual Machine Driver Pack" today. You can find it on the downloads site. A word of warning, though, from the Documentation:

1.9 Avoiding Problems with the Drivers

  • Upgrading the Linux* kernel of the virtual machine host without upgrading the driver pack at the same time.
So, you can't run it on openSUSE (different kernel), and since SLES10 SP1 has already had a kernel update, you can't use it THERE without a subscription. So no freebie.

But, the fact that they've released it is great. Also, they list Windows XP drivers as part of the download. Yay!
