did you add the ftp site from which you want to install? it should be typed into the boot menu:

install=ftp://ip.address/path/to/suse9.0

well the problem is that it wont see that i have a network card on my motherboard.. so according to the installation program it says: cannot install no Internet available..

i already found out that i need to activate the network device in the installation menu.. but then you get a huge list of what you can chose..
but i don't know which one..
