Thank you, I dowloaded all the rpm-files from there and installed them.
I had a little trouble with the
maxdb-web-22.214.171.124-1.i586.rpm, because yast complained that /usr/spool
should be a link to /var/spool rather than an existing directory. In
/usr/spool I only found a directory sql/ which contained some symbolic
links to /sapdb/data. I then moved sql/ to /var/spool and created a
symbolic link from /usr/spool to /var/spool. After this little operation
I could install maxdb-web.
When running NW4/install.sh I still receive the same error message as
before. This is probably, because maxdb is configured as sapdb-7.5-2
within the test_suite. (The sapdb-rpm is already installed). Maybe I'd
have to uninstall the sap-rpms (and probably even the installed
maxdb-rpms) manually in yast and reinstall the mysql-maxdb-rpms
afterwards? Would install.sh check for an existing maxdb before
installing the sapdb-package? Or is there any other option to tell
install.sh that the actual maxdb now is a different one?

No problem. I am not in a hurry to get the installation done. Just feel
free to answer me any time you have the opportunity.
