Why?

You don't have a DVD reader, either DVD Rom or combo drive? If not, it would be better to download CDs if you have broadband. Elaborate, please. chuck

suse

I have a DVD reader and a CD burner on another computer ...would like to convert to CD's in order to take a look at SUSE 9.1 pro

(looks like the ''pro'' is not available for free download....the DVD came in a Linux Magazine)

as I have been looking only at Fedora and Mandrake so far...

Thanks

Really?

I noted open suse and I'd like to know what's not in it that you are looking for.

Do tell.

hoops

How many hoops does a person have to jump through to get a simple answer to a simple question on this forum ???

Not many.

While turning the DVD into CDs is possible, no one I know has done it since it would take far longer than getting the new CDs from OpenSuse.

Also, why not answer my question?

None that i've seen

First of all, it is not that simple an answer. I am sure that it is possible but VERY complicated, especially when you try to tell the installer where to look for packages and so on. In my humble estimation, it is way outside of the capabilities of 90% of the people on this forum, anyway.

Secondly, i think what people are trying to point out by asking "why" is that there are much simpler and faster ways to execute your stated intent (try out SuSE) than to convert an installation DVD iso to CDs (like get OpenSuSE 10.1... pretty much the same thing, from what i understand) and asking "why" helps them find something that best fits your needs.

Good Luck with SuSE.
Try Debian next.

Just sharing.

I'm finding the Open Suse 10 to be a nice step up from Suse 9.1 and... you can get the CDs.
