Difficulty installing opensuse. Any help appreciated!
I downloaded the opensuse 11.2 iso but could not burn it to disk so i instead ran the NET installer whilst logged into windows vista. I set up a FAT partition on a secondary harddrive and copied all these files there being optimistic about the simplicity of this project!
When I boot my pc i get the option of windows vista, or opensuse 11.2 net install. no matter what i click, it boots the opensuse net install (problematic...)
Anyway here is the hard part. My pc boots into linuxrc v3.4.7, and asks me to install disk 1. I click back to get to the other options. Installing from hard drive only lists my primary disk drive (the NTFS one with windows in) so my options are really limited to net install. I've got i to automatically connect DHCP, it then gives me 5 options,(choose the network protocol) ftp, http etc. I've read that i need to click http and i entered the ip address, and the directory, it asks if i need a username or password so i click no. It then asks to use a HTTP proxy, if i click yes it requests an ip adress (or a username, can't remember) if i click no it goes back to the "choose the network protocol" screen with the "ok" button depressed, and stays like that. It's been like that for an hour atm...
Excuse the typing, don't like laptop keys. Also, please take it easy on me with the information, I'm less smart than I though I was!
It's difficult for me to give you a source considering that I cannot access my windows files, although I'm assured that were you to download any opensuse 11.2 ISO and explore the files with daemontools or powerISO you would find them, they are executables, one with local in the name and one with net in the name.
