So you have a DVD drive not a "CDROM" drive, correct?
The directory is located DVD://boot/ (here is the README file in that dir)
Creating SUSE LINUX 9.1 Boot Disks
Due to increasing kernel size, there are now three boot disks.
You can create the boot disks if you have access to a running Linux
box or a running DOS box.
Under DOS, write bootdsk1, bootdsk2 and bootdsk3 to formatted (i.e.,
error-free) 1.44MB-floppies using CD1:/dosutils/rawrite/rawrite.exe. For
Windows systems, there is CD1:/dosutils/rawwritewin/rawwritewin.exe.
With Linux, use commands like:
# insert first boot floppy, then run:
dd if=bootdsk1 of=/dev/fd0u1440
# insert second boot floppy, then run:
dd if=bootdsk2 of=/dev/fd0u1440
# insert third boot floppy, then run:
dd if=bootdsk3 of=/dev/fd0u1440
Now you have three boot disks. Start your computer using the first disk.
