    Downloading SUSE 9.2 PRO


    http://www.novell.com/products/linux...nux/index.html

    Is that the right place? It says it's the eval (short for evaluation??) version.

    I read the sticky and I would download the DVD Iso but my DVD is external and I most likely wont be able to boot from it, the CD Iso is 64Mbs, only!?

    Confused.

    I see that 9.1 has a "personal" CD version of 700Mbs....

    As a Linux noobie, am I going to see a difference using 9.1 instead of 9.2? Or should I just get 9.2 and be up to date?

    You should go for 9.2 Pro.

    Hmm. Kay.

    I just liked the idea of only needing one CD... Since I cant boot from a DVD I'll be stuck burning 4 cd's

    The 64Mb iso will allow you to boot from it but it's an FTP install (ie. you'll end up downloading the rest of the software).

    Edit: Ahh! I need to install the 64Mb Suse and when it's done, it will download whatever else it needs.

    Thanks

    The CD ISO file is for network (ftp) installation. You boot from the cd, set up your network card, and point the installer to a "good" ftp server where all the packages reside.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    What i see on that page is an ftp install and a DVD iso image. I would much rather download the DVD iso image (even if it is a full 3.1 gigs) than install via ftp, because my modem is most likely not going to be recognised by SuSE.

    Now, what does it mean by evaluation version? Will I have to stop using SuSE after 30 days and give a serial number or something? Or does the DVD version come stunted with like less drivers or something? I just hope it means I won't have access to telephone support (lesser of a few evils). Also, if I install this version, will I be able to 'complete' the package they offer by downloading stuff from the net?

    It also says that I can install SUSE completely for free if I do it through ftp. Will I be able to install SUSE Professional 9.2, full, supported version, absolutely free just for clogging up Novell's ftp servers? I really dont understand.

    I would appreciate anybody just translating Novell's download page for me into a language that I can make head and tail from (maybe its me that was born stunted, and not Novell's DVD iso )
