I am running OES SP2 as a VM inside ESX Server 3.01.

I believe my patches are nearly up to date.

However, I now am unable to use the "Install and Remove Software" tool in
YaST because when I try it hangs while doing an initial check for
dependencies. I have the Installation Source set to /media/cdrom and can
browse the install cd in the drive from a terminal session, yet nothing I
try allows me to get anywhere. Can anyone help?
