A live CD is a great way of trying linux. Dont put up with too much trouble to get this system set up however, because if you decide to install linux (which I hope you will), you will need to do most of that over.
That said, I think there are great tools for doing this in SUSE (I am not a SUSE user myself). Try looking in YAST2, this is by far the easiest way.
If you cant find it (i.e. if there is no such thing), you need to set it up the hard way. Please, only put up with this, if:
1) you are certain there is no SUSE tool for it
2) you need internet access in linux
3) you are willing to put some time into that effort.
Still here? Good!
First thing, you need to do, is run the adsl-setup script as root:
On the command line, type: su
to become the system administrator
After this, you need to run the program to set your connection up:
This program should walk you through the process. When you are done, you can bring your internet connection up by typing adsl-start
on the command line (become the system administrator first).
I hope this has helped you. It is painful and a new user should not need to do this kind of command line stuff, but since you asked
. Again, running linux off a live-CD is really not the way to go on a permanent basis. If you like it, install it. It will
