I need a package download for SLES 11


The DVD that came with my text is scratched clean through the boot sector, so I am not able to read from it. I have chapter exercises that require me to install optional packages from the DVD. Is there a place to download these packages? I download the 3 GB DVD, but it does not have those, and the 4.8 GB is too large to burn or mount.
I would get it from my instructor, but he was sick this week and I only have 3 more weeks of school and am trying to make up all the classwork.
Thanks!

Those are the ones that I downloaded, and they are just trial versions. But DVD 2 is like 4,943,804 KB in ISO format, just a little to large to burn to DVD.

Can't say I've ever had trouble burning the SLES DVDs - however you shouldn't need to. Simply mount the iso somewhere, add it as a repo and proceed as normal.
For doing the exercises you might find it best to add the mount to fstab - maybe in both the host and guest system. Can't remember if that is absolutely necessary.
