Thank you, Ram and Susanne.

Is it really needed that the yum repositories for SUSE must be in a 
directory named "SLE10"? I can set a symlink, but when it comes to other 
versions of (Open)SUSE I will have to set symlinks for each version and 
also index separately.

Do I also always need separate indexing for initial installation (YaST) 
and for updates (yum)?

Do we already have somewhere (for example on the server for LSB 
packages) scripts for automatic indexing of the package repositories for 
SUSE (and also for other distros)?

If not, I would suggest that someone from SUSE/Novell makes the scripts 
and tests them.
