sure you can.
All you have to do is download the complete Suse 9 install (i386) and place it somewhere on your harddisk.
Burn the image in bootdisk and boot from it.
After booting, you can select Manual installation where you can choose to install from ftp, network or local harddisk.
If you choose local harddisk, just tell Suse 9 install where it can find the files and install takes over from there.
If you have any troubles, let me know.
