I do not want to get IP addresses from a DHCP server because a server should have static IP addresses so I change this by selecting Static Address Setup and enter an IP Address (e.g. 192.168.0.199) and a Subnet Mask (e.g. 255.255.255.0):
Under Host Name and Name Server Configuration I set my hostname server1.example.com and enter up to 3 DNS servers (e.g. 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206):
Under Routing Configuration I set my gateway (e.g. 192.168.0.1):
Under Advanced -> Additional Addresses you can set additional IP addresses. I want to create a virtual network card eth0:0 with the IP address 192.168.0.200 (my main one is 192.168.0.199 in this example) so I select Additional Addresses:
Then select Add to enter the additional IP address.
I enter an Alias Name (0), my additional IP address (192.168.0.200) and my netmask (255.255.255.0):
Click on OK, then OK again:
Back to the main Network Configuration screen, and then Next:
The network configuration is being saved:

Create a second user other than root (e.g. admin):
The system configuration gets written:
Read the release notes (if you like...) and select Next + hit Enter:
Finally YaST performs a hardware check (graphics cards, printers, sound, TV cards and Bluetooth). You can accept the results of this check as this hardware is not important for a server.
Congratulations! Your base installation is complete.
On to the next step...
