Angry SUSE 9.0 Install on Dell PE1955


HELP.. Been working on getting SUSE installed on a Dell 1955 blade server for the LAST 3 DAYS... Started out first w/SLES 10, but had issues with 10 and usb cdrom drivers, then went down to 9 and that seemed to be working fine up until it prompted for cd 2. I put cd 2 in and it states it is invalid. I have burned the iso twice, the message remains, I also have re-downloaded cd 2 and the problem remains. What am I missing here? I have 2 days left to get this darn server up and running and am scratching my head on why in the world this is so problematic? Thank you for your help!

Maybe you have reasons to choose an older version, but I would install the very last release if I had hardware issues. OpenSuSE 10.3 still have CD iso images.

have you tried seeing if the md5 sum matches with the second disc?

Novell suggests using SLES 9 for GroupWise, which is what this server is suppose to be running in the next day or so. So I would like to stick with 9 since I can not get any one from Novell stating 10 is OK with GroupWise

yes, the md5 does match up. Which makes no sense what so ever. I know. I read somewhere last week of someone having to install the original cd, then sp3, then original at different points in the initial install, however nothing seems to be working for me at this moment. All of these downloads ARE coming from Novell's site. I guess I could try another site. Where does someone suggest? Hopefully quicker than Novell's since it takes forever to download anything from their servers. Thanks

Went to the dvd in place of the cd and now everything is working properly. Thanks for your suggestions.
