The files in which the most important SUSE LINUX settings are stored are
located in the
directory. The sysconfig editor presents the options in an easy-to-read
manner. The values can be modified and subsequently added to the individual
configuration files in this directory. In general, it is not necessary to
edit them manually, however, because these files are automatically adjusted
when installing a package or configuring a service.

The YaST sysconfig dialog is split into three parts. The left part of the dialog shows a tree view of all configurable variables. When you select a variable, the right part displays both the current selection and the current setting of this variable. Below, a third window displays a short description of the variable's purpose, possible values, the default value, and the actual configuration file from which this variable originates. The dialog also provides information about which configuration script is executed after changing the variable and which new service is started as a result of the change. YaST prompts you to confirm your changes and informs you which scripts will be executed after you leave the dialog by selecting. Also select the services and scripts to skip for now, so they are started later.
