We pulled the fastbugs and testing repo's out of the repository file that comes with sl-release. They are now in their own rpm called yum-conf-sl-other.
This is done to fix the problem of people checking the fastbugs during the install. Since fastbugs is then not on by default after the install, updates break.

Updated config files to point to 6x instead of 6.0
Updated ks/sl6.match.tuv.install.dvd.* to match TUV better.

This contains the sl-fastbugs, sl-testing, and sl-debuginfo yum repositories.

Other known changes

DVD Install - request to setup network
When you click "Next" on the Boot Loader Screen, you will be asked to setup your network before you move to the Installation Type Screen.
This is Not Mandatory. You can safely click "Cancel". You will have to click "Cancel" twice. This is normal.
