    you'll have to burn the ISO files to cd, and from the command line, you'll want to use cdrecord:
    Code:
    man cdrecord

    As far as I know, there is no way to mount that ISO from within the OS and run the installer, and there's *definitely* no way to boot from it while it's on your harddrive, particularly if you want to install over SuSE in the process. I welcome anyone who'd like to show me how, though.
