First you have to create a basefile for SLES11. Use the rinse command
for that and put the resulting file into the config space under
basefiles. Then adjust the task repository, to get access to the
package repository. I'm not sure if SLES is using yum or zypper.
Finaly you have to adjust some package names in package_config/ and
check if the customzisation scripts in scripts/ are woring for SLES.

Happy holidays to all of you
