Suse


I'm searching suse linux 9.0 but I find only Live-evals(iso)

Does somebody know where can I find the real, normal version?

To do a SuSE install for the full free version your only choice is to do an FTP install. Just go to http://www.suse.com/us/private/downl...t_mirrors.html and pick a mirror near you. Browse to the boot directory of the platform and version you wish to install on, and download the boot.iso file and burn to cd. Also, you should write down the dns name of the ftp server you are using and do an nslookup on them to find their IP address because SuSE's ftp installer only support's IP addresses, not DNS names. Which really stinks, but oh well. You also want to write down the path on the host that suse lives in, say if you downloaded the boot.iso from
ftp://ftp.sunsite.utk.edu/pub/linux/...i386/9.0/boot, then you want to make sure that you write down /pub/linux/suse/suse/i386/9.0/ because you'll have to tell the installer app where the SuSE distro lives on the mirror. All of this is also written in SuSE's README.FTP located on the suse mirror, ex. ftp://ftp.sunsite.utk.edu/pub/linux/...9.0/README.FTP . Good luck. I have been using SuSE 9.0 Pro for a while and swear by it. I also have a cousin who is just starting out with Linux and I had him do an FTP install of SuSE 9.0 and he had no problems.
