Creating Install Disks


I have the SUSE tree (11 disks I think) and want to create install disks from it. Sometime ago I did read the steps involved to do this but have since forgotten 99% of what I read.

Can someone present the basics to me or provide a link to a site that may have the steps?

I would appreciate it.

Thank you,
rfburn

I'm not the brightest guy in the world, but google was the first stop I made.

Granted my serch params may have been bad, but I found no help by way of google.

Really, thanks.

sorry I did not see that this was your first post please forgive me, did you try google groups?

Also, I think that you can make a boot floppy and install from there.

Ahhhhhh...
I'm likely just a bit cranky.

No, I didn't try google groups but will.

Thank you,

Is there a reason why you can't install via ftp?

Slow conection.
I used the high speed at work to get the source tree.

I suppose that I could copy the 11 cd's to a computer in my home network and install from there.


Actually, that might work pretty good.
