The installer is for people who want to try Mono quickly.

If you have SUSE, pick the RPM packages for your specific distribution
from the Downloads page, they come in a zip file with lots of rpms on

Then upgrade your Mono installation like this:

	rpm -Uvh *.rpm

(In the directory where you unziped the downloaded file).
