OSS note can be viewd in SNOTE itself... and also in service.sap.com if you have a valid s-user id..
No issues if you download the Snote..for knowing the version to which the SNOTE is applicable that is mentioned in the SNOTE itself and also the pre-requisites...
You just go thru any SNOTE .. You will understand...
You can use SNOTE. The preferred way is to view the note through SAP service Marketplace(service.sap.com) You will need an account for this though.. The note is not applied till you Implement it. You can check the valid package for the note in the description and then check the package level of your system. If you are at a higher package level then the code corrections cannot be implemented.
Once you are having the Note Number....Goto service.sap.com and select notes search....and you will get all details of the OSS Notes...like any prerequisite note for that note, compatible SAP Version's, Correction Instruction's etc....
SNOTE will automatically take care of Version Compatibility.....
SNOTE doesn't work for OSS Notes related to Data Dictionary Objects and you need to apply them Manually.....

I was looking at your response from the above query. I'm having a problem in viewing the OSS notes. I'm using firefox as my browser. I was able to log in to SAP Service Marketplace unfortunately every time I key-in the desired OSS NOTES in SAP Support Portal it always ask for a username and password and during this, I can't view the OSS note that I wanted to view. I have read a few conversation, is there something that I need to register or change password for this?
Your help is much appreciated.
