Adding SUSE iscsi guy.


We are trying to sort out some HP docs that for iscsi support in SLES10. 
  The info in the docs below looks like linux-iscsi. Did you put 
open-iscsi or linux-iscsi in SLES 10?

Ah yeah, /etc/initiatorname.iscsi is linux-iscsi and not open-iscsi.

/dev/iscsi is linux-iscsi.

Sounds like linux-iscsi again.

I thought SLES 10 actually used open-iscsi. The 3.6.3 is a linux-iscsi
