Customizing and configuring my own YaST tool.

Before proceeding with my question, let it be known that I am a Linux newbie.....having spent the last 7 or 8 years in Microsoft-land (VB, ASP, ASpx, C#, etc). With a new Linux project assignment I'm getting my feet wet quickly with SuSE SLES 9.

My questions are:
() how does one create & build a new YaST theme? Can't seem to find any doc on this.

() besides the SuSE YaST doc, what are the best sources for info on configuring and/or customizing YaST?

I want YaST to appear as close to vanilla as possible (w/o SuSE graphics and text such as "SuSE", "Linux", "Novell", etc). Also I need to configure specific YaST screens so that user options listed are a subset of the defaults.  And, I need to tweak some of the Help text displayed in YaST. (This last one looks like it comes down to changing inline text in YaST control files xxx.ycp).

Any help pointing me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
