Thank you Walt for your response. I guess what I understand is not what you 
mean to say since doing what I understand you to be saying does not cause a 
status change that sticks from one execution of YaST to the next.

Here is the process of what I do and the results. Using the GUI I execute YaST. 
I then select "Install and Remove Software" and enter "wine" as the search 
target. Performing that search shows me wine with a status of "Keep" and with 
an Avail. Version 20050211-4 and with an Installed Version 0.9.7-0.1. I change 
the status from "Keep" to "Protected -- Do Not Modify." I then click "Accept", 
"Finish", and "Close" in succession. When I again execute YaST, select "Install 
and Remove Software", enter "wine" as the search target, and perform that 
search then I see that wine is again set to "Keep" instead of "Protected -- Do 
Not Modify." 

As I understand it wine is not protected from YOU which would "update" wine if 
I did not specifically tell it each time that wine is Protected.

Please tell me what I'm not understanding.
