Reliable OpenSUSE download mirror?

My hardware restricts me to floppy based, net install of OpenSUSE 10.2. SUSE is the only Linux distribution that supports my hardware. The entire install process can half a day. Unfortunately, I keep picking mirrors that only last for a while, then can no longer connect, essentually meaning that I have to start the install over. So I end up wasting a day pretty fast trying out different mirrors. Anyone know of a reliable mirror?

Well, you can always go to the source.

I take it you have no CD/DVD drive?

You can try, it's probably the most reliable of all.
