Can I boot install suse from a zip disk?


On the suse website it said that I could install linux from a hardrive. Could I install it from a zip disk?

Wow. Didn't know they have 750mb Zip disks now. You probably can install from a Zip, much in the same way it is done for an hd, by mounting it.
netboy_541,
Those mini cd's are ~200mb, and the ftp install iso is only ~20mb. So the ftp will go on there easily.
