SUSE 9.1 Personal Boot Diskettes - where?


I've just downloaded the SUSE 9.1 distro (1cd) which I have imaged onto a single new CD. I am searching that CD for the image files to rawwrite the 3 boot diskettes required to install SUSE starting from diskette. This procedure is detailed in the readme file in the /boot directory, and also refers to the rawwrite and rawwritewin utils in the /dosutils dir...but there isn't a /dosutils dir?
Nor can I find any files resembling the image files mentioned bootdsk1/2/3 which I assume should be around 1.4meg. I have searched the whole CD.

Can anyone confirm I'm not goin' blind please?

A pointer to these diskette images would be a great help.

Regards...Jules
