See, i read both those SuSE support pages before posting here actually
My problem with doing a straight ftp install is that my cable net connection needs a 3rd party program to log in, and im not sure if the sure install would allow me to excecute a program on a floppy mid way thru the install??? I know things like slackware dumps you at a command prompt before it even begins the install, and debian has an option "execute a shell" but im not sure if suse had that. If it did, im assuming i could somehow boot in off the boot and ramdisk images, then take the disks out, load the module for my NICard, and then insert the disk and run the program and then go on with the install as per normal from ftp.
The other option i thought of would be to do a minimal install of 7.1, download all the updates from the suse ftp, upgrade, and then install programs normally from the net from the install software module in yast.
I will buy 7.3, but im waiting for my local linux shop "Everything Linux"
to get a shipment of them in.
So if i can execute a shell program during
the install then i can do it.
Any suggestions based on what i said here?
