I added / updated the tips&tricks section on the website recently - sorry for
beeing that late - but you can now check

for the "no start profiles found" problem on newer SUSE versions.

-> Usually the system number of the NW4 TestDrive is '00', therefore the port
number should be '3200' - instead of '3201'.

If the system became "quiet" (no more heavy paging for instance :) ) after the
startup, it should be ready for logging in.

The system can't start, if shmmax is lower than 1GB, so everything should be
fine in this area.
