just to let you know that come SLES10/SL10.1, SUSE will package kernel
modules differently, in their own sub-packages. (I've already internally
converted drbd to this mechanism of course, you'll see that appear in
the next beta if you look ;-)

This mechanism eases building kernel module packages by 3rd parties
considerably. It is also being rolled out for SLES9. You may wish to
investigate using this for your own packages you provide to
