Of course it's legal. I don't have the disks though, basically your asking someone who bought the disks to make a copy for you. Thats fine, but I would be inclined to hassle suse to release an ISO image set for download. In fact I have in the past and plan to do so again soon

Cool. Thanx for the info. My Request for the copy of SuSE 8 is still there. Please if anyone has bought SuSE 8.0 Professional, would he/she be kind eough to make ISO images for me? Thanx beforehand.

Also, I don't know about hassling SuSE. Their contact information is only for partners and corporations, etc...

Dude, I am no expert, but if you have the bandwidth to d/l an iso don't you think you probably have enough for the ftp install? Not to be a joy-kill or anything, but have you tried that yet? I haven't so I am just guessing, but I doubt it's very rough. Suse provides instructions on their website for it.

I can only see 1 problem with the iso idea for you though, 1 of the disks is a DVD. I think that unless you have a DVD burner, then an iso of it won't help you much.

Why don't you download it off the SuSE server?

If you've only got a 56k modem then I understand, but if you've got ADSL or cable just do it.

But I do have it if that's what you wanna know and it's 7 CDs.

What d'you want? A proper copy of the 7 CDs?

the DVD contains all of the stuff from the other 7 disks. it is not unique.

I have concidered the FTP install as well but I am using a USB modem that is kind of picky to configure so I dont want to try to setup the boot disk.

I am happy with 7.2 at the moment, but if someone wants to upload some iso's then I would give 8 a go

How much do you think it'd cost me to send you 7 CDs over from Europe?
Get the prices, tell me how much it is, and I might be able to make you nice copies, I'd have to do it on sh!ty CDs tho cuz I'm not gonna spend 15 on the blank CDs.

Ahh daddy!

Would you create ISO images and upload them to a server in the UK?

I can compensate you with an FTP account and access to my p2p shared files. I'll even turn off my p2p networking stuff for a few days so you get full bandwidth. I've an ADSL connection. You might have to share with shassouneh though

Drop me an email

I haven't got ADSL yet, but since you're in the UK it might be cheaper for me to make the CDs and send them directly to you so you can upload them to your FTP server. What's your e-mail address anyway mate.

We've had a bit of an email session and Daddy Sned is going to send me the disks. I'll then create some images and put the images on the FTP server I'll post the address after the CD's have arrived. Monitor this thread for updates
