Boot Options for USB
Need to make new install from dvd connected via USB (1.1) port, if at all possible. Thought might make use of the "Boot Options" box toward bottom of green openSUSE boot screen. Is there some command or option which could be typed there to bypass the standard CD-Floppy-HD choices and direct install to the USB dvd device? Have read references to "sbootmgr.dsk" and "syslinux", but all man, info, apropos, cat, etc. attempts to get data regarding them have turned up empty. Probably can't be done (esp. on my 8 year old laptop), but if someone has any insight on this matter, it would be greatly appreciated. Present OS setup likely has to be scrubbed as many elements just don't function (video player with all codexes there; unreliable email; KDiskFree spotty; present message at bottom of screen "Warning - KDE Panel"; etc.). Suppose direct download possible, but prefer to do it by install disk if possible -- and only dvd unit is external via USB.
