suse 7.3 eval install on win2k machine


I'm trying to install the eval version of Suse 7.3 on a machine that has Win2k already on it. I want to keep the dual boot. I made two unformatted partitions for linux to use.

I booted off the cd and the install started fine, but it never asked me where I wanted to put Linux or if I wanted to do anything to the MBR. Did I miss something for the "advanced" installation option or something? It finished installing and looks like it installed itself on C:\ which is fat32 where windows is.

Could someone tell me how to get to these advanced options or anything? Thanks.

the evaluation version of suse doesn't really create a linux file system, it just installs a few files so that you can run suse from the cd drive.

Hmmm

I didn't see any other .iso files for download for Suse 7.3. Is the only way to get their "full" version by purchasing the software or can you get it and I was just looking in the wrong spot. Thanks.

Oh well

Oh well, thanks for the information.

I don't mind paying, but I want to try it before I buy. Guess I'll look to another distro. Thanks for the help though.

I've done it myself a few times via ftp. You jsut need a fast connection and either a static IP or a NAT firewall as the setup program can only get an IP addr via bootp (rather than dhcp)
