Hi, if I want to add Packman as an installation source in yast the packman faq 
on http://wiki.links2linux.de/wiki/PackMan:FAQ_%28de%29#YaST suggests to 
choose a mirror from http://packman.links2linux.de/MIRRORS.html, put it into 
the "server" field and put "suse/10.3" into the "directory" field.

This fails. Please change the FAQ entry to something along the lines of

Chosse a mirror from http://packman.links2linux.de/MIRRORS.html like for 

Put the server part ("ftp.halifax.rwth-aachen.de") into the "server" field, 
get rid of the protocol part and the trailing directory parts (like "http://" 
and "pub/packman" or "/packman")

Put the trailing directory part (like "/pub/packman" or "/packman") into 
the "directory" field and append "/suse/10.3". So the final "directory field 
might read something like "/pub/packman/suse/10.3".

Change the "10.3" part depending on the version you're on.

Cheers, and thanks for packman.
