You pick either FTP or HTTP.. and find a link repository.

There should be some on the site of suse.

This one should work!

If don't .. just go to the website of suse and look through the mirror list! For the link i specified you choose HTTP. @ server you fill in :

And @ directory you fill in: /distribution/SL-10.1/inst-source/

Should work like a charm.
