Okay, I had to set the hardware clock to UTC to get both Suse and Windows on time, but I doubt that will deal with Kubuntu, since it read the time properly when it was set to local time. That may not matter too much, since I'm getting Suse working better. At least I can have all of my ODDs connected, without Suse balking on boot, like Kubuntu does. The only thing about Suse is that it still requires more manual fiddling than it should, like having to install the VLC codecs separately. Since it automatically installs everything it needs in both Windows and Kubuntu, it would seem that should also be true in Suse.
