on the 9.0 pro there was the options but not on the CDROM based on the ftp distro. I am going to try the procedure I wrote earlier through Yast ...

On the 9.2 install CDthereis no update options anymore
I am going to try the procedure I wrote earlier through Yast hopefully it will re introduce the setup config.
If this does not work I will reintall the 9.0 making sure I'll build a standard boot floppy this time from scratch.

found the answer
1/ open Yast after you log under root
2/ click on software
3/ install and remove Software
4/ A window open and on the menu select Package Groups (it defaults on search) but scroll the menu please.
5/ Scroll down to Yast
6/ add (on the right window now)... yast2-bootfloppy
then follow normal procedures of installation.
You should then find the create floppy options where the guy who answered to you first said it was located.

Welcome to Linuxforums! I'm afraid that option is not in my YaST, I seem to have an unusal version of SuSE that came with a magazine, but Flatline gave me command line instructions to create the boot floppy and that worked for me. Thnks for the help, here's a link to the solution;
What part of France are you in? I've been to Paris 5 times over the years and to other places North and South of the capital.

Or you could make a grub floppy manually...
It's relatively easy to create a grub boot floppy...it does take several commands, though. The following assumes that you've booted into your Suse install.
Toss a floppy in your drive (warning! this procedure will erase EVERYTHING on the floppy!) and type (in a terminal, as root)
Then create a filesystem on the disk with
mkfs -t msdos /dev/fd0
After running the mkfs command succesfully, mount the floppy with
mount /dev/fd0 /media/floppy/
You'll need to create a couple of directories on the floppy, so type
Next, you need to copy the stage1 and stage2 files from your /boot directory to the /boot directory on the floppy with
cp /boot/grub/stage* /media/floppy/boot/grub/
cp /boot/grub/menu.lst /media/floppy/boot/grub/
You should now have a working grub boot floppy with a boot list.There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.
