You would have to study, but Fedora's RH-based tools are less 
encompassing. However, with some reading of the expansive RedHat 
documentation, you could probably get it.

No. Now that you have it installed, you can go back and edit the Grub 
menu directly and change "acpic=off" to "acpi=on". It's at 
/boot/grub/menu.lst -- that's an LST on the end. I've had to make 
adjustements to that file after installing on a couple of SuSE machines.

SuSE is going through a very bad time with their 10.0 release.
