openSUSE 10.2 Beta1 'Delta ISO'

I am confused what 'Delta ISO' actually means for new openSUSE 10.2 Beta1.

"We have created Delta ISOs from the DVD of Alpha5..." (Andreas)

I alrady have i386 10.2 Alpha5 DVD and am running it very successfully on my HP dv6000t laptop. I plan to load new 10.2 Beta1 in another partition.

QUESTION: Do I just download the 10.2 Beta1 'Delta ISO' and install my old Alpha5 dvd first, then update with Beta1???

Sorry, I just can't figure out what to do... Many thanks for clarifying what this means.

deltas are like diffs, just the changes from the previous version.

Thanks... I understand now. I can do that...

I'm an old Slackware guy but find that openSUSE is the best fit for my new HP laptop, so I'm learning lots about SUSE.

Which means you can only use the Delta ISO's if you are going from Alpha 5 to Beta 1 only
