I was having a problem adding the yast source from the suse ftp.
This is what I did:
1. Went to Change Source of Installation under Software in Yast.
2. Went to Add and then FTP
3. For Server Name, I put ftp.suse.com
4. For Directory on Server, I put pub/suse/i386/9.2/suse/i586/ (which I believe is the directory I want)
After clicking OK, I get the error message
Unable to create installation source from URL 'ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/9.2/suse/i586' Details: ERROR(InstSrc:E_no_instsrc_on_media) Try Again?
Am I using the wrong directory? Am I not following the proper steps?
I remember doing this on 9.1 personal and it taking 5 seconds and this is becoming quite the task for 9.2.
Thanks in advance,

Thanks for the response lakerdonald,
I was successfully able to get the Yast source for the suse ftp server on my list.
A weird thing is that there seems to be no software or much less than I remember from 9.1 when I search something. For instance, Eclipse is not there but I'm pretty sure it was when I used 9.1. That is just one example. Any time I do find anything, it is already installed.
By the way, I have the Suse 9.2 DVD as a source in Yast as well.
Is everything on the ftp server on the DVD? Is this possibly the wrong directory? Should I remove the DVD from the source list?

Just to make sure it uses the FTP source, try disabling the DVD source, and mive it to the bottom of the list in the sources part of YaST, i think if you have the DVD above the FTP and enabled, it will use that."I am not an alcoholic, alcoholics go to meetings"

Thanks everyone for your responses,
I was able to get one of the complete mirrors to work, so now I have access to all of the software.
For anyone who has had the same problem I did, if you go to http://www.suse.com/us/private/downl...t_mirrors.html you can find a list of mirrors that are hopefully close to you.
I believe when you are adding a source to Yast, you have to choose the directory with the "content" and "directory.yast" files (at least for 9.2).
Thanks again for the help,
