i have a client SUSE 11.1 box that now requires PHP 5.3 where as the original scope of work called for PHP 5.2

yast2 doesn't seem to see anything other than 5.2. i can't figure out how to get repositories configured. i really really dislike SUSE and i'm hoping you guys can help. thanks.

This would be better on serverfault, and you can probably find an answer to this on Google. – D. Strout May 15 '12 at 18:32
Next to probably the wrong, site, please do your homework first. – hakre May 15 '12 at 18:48
sorry guys - yes - you're right - i put it in the wrong forum. my apologies. as far as research is concerned i've google'd the heck out of this and being a debian guy - i guess i don't know where to start. i simply do not understand the yast system, moreover, why it's hitting the install DVD for software repos rather than the URL i gave it. – hobakill May 15 '12 at 19:07
