SuSE Linux 9 vs 9.1

I'm confused. Is SuSE Linux 9 and 9.1 both Enterprise editions or is 9 the Enterprise and 9.1 the Professional? I'm having trouble installing some monitoring software that is only supported on Enterprise editions.

There is no SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9.1, just SLES 9. If you see 9.1
that technically means SUSE Pro 9.1 which is the free hobbyist version
(now called openSUSE).

You won't find the Enterprise products there. For SLES9,
http://www.novell.com/products/server9/
would be the starting point. Note that SLES9 (SP4) is an older version. The
current version is SLES10 (SP1),

In many, many ways 9.1 is very similar to SLES 9 GA. So.. if you have
SLES 9 and want to install some of the desktop packages (in particular
ones that didn't even ship with the Novell Linux Desktop), then
installing from SUSE Pro 9.1 works well.

However, with that said, SUSE Pro 9.1 isn't SLES 9. So any software
that checks the version (for example) won't like anyone treating
SUSE Pro 9.1 as if it were SLES 9.

So... SUSE Pro 9.1 is NOT a poor man's SLES 9. However using
SUSE Pro 9.1 package installs on a SLES 9 box is not that
uncommon... and it's pretty safe.
