As far as I'm aware, it is a "live" CD image. That's what the website stated (Novell's), and it is set to seek the CD-ROM first, as I have no 3.5" floppy. Sorry for referring to CD-ROM as a floppy drive. At any rate, the issue remains.......
SUSE makes the live-eval version of SUSE LINUX available for download as an ISO image. This version runs entirely from the bootable DVD and is not installed on the hard disk.
If you want to get to know SUSE LINUX or test if your hardware is fully supported, the live-eval version is the right choice for you.
