    Perhaps in April 2005. And if I read
    http://www.pro-linux.de/security/7043 correctly it is unsupported
    anyways (sorry, I can't find a date on that page).
    ATM there are probably newer releases and I doubt that there are no
    updates for the kernel (even Debian/Stable has them).

    That's an unsolvable problem: You want a "stable" distribution from year
    X to support hardware designed and built in the future.

    And BTW perhaps it is enough to take the kernel RPM (+ plus a few of the
    kernel-near ones - dependencies will probably tell you) from the most
    recent SuSE and try that if you for whatever reason want to stay with
    the above release.
