does ne one know where i can download the userguide for suse 9.0.
Looking for a little leisure reading, eh? I don't think there's any need to download anything. The SuSE User Guide should be available on CD2. Check for the file:
under the point where you've mounted the CD. You might want the Admin Guide as well; it's in the same subdirectory. There are dependencies but YaST2 should take care of those when you install the documentation RPM(s).
Hope this helps.
