Yast is a setup and configuration tool and apt-get is an
installation/update tool only. So you can't really replace yast with
apt-get. There is apt4rpm, but I haven't tested.
I'm going to do something called suse-get, which gets SuSE packages from
an FTP server, if you don't have the CD's around. This is far not apt-get,
but makes life easier.
Dependency checking is horror, and makes everything slow, and therefore I
try to avoid it wherever possible and leave it to RPM (and the errors to
Apt has to care for dependencies, and this is why fou4s is not like apt.
As a configuration tool, YaST is still good (I only use YaST1), and you
can use /etc/rc.config as well.
I'll get SuSE8 today, and I heard that they moved lots of stuff to
/etc/sysconfig, which is more standards compliant.
