Which files do I download


I'm new to this and i've only ever installed from a cd, I was hoping to download suse 9.1 but i'm not quite sure which of the files on the ftp sever to download. I imagine its generally the same for all distributions so any information would be a big help.

This is the one that I downloaded, I haven't installed or burned it yet but I believe it is the correct one.

Its the LiveCD so it's bootable

Suse 9.1

Make sure if it's an ISO you burn it onto CD correctly with an ISO burner. (if you're on windows.. this should work: http://isorecorder.alexfeinman.com/isorecorder.htm )

Not sure what you mean by "common iso". Each distribution will have their own iso files, some will have more than others - but they will all end with ".iso".

You should check the files after downloading (follow this link) and then burn them to cd (follow this link). I normally get my iso files from LinuxISO, but there are other places.
