Error message: ‘No default or UI configuration directive found.

I downloaded SUSE to a directory and copied that to a CD to use for running a trial on a 950 Mhz laptop. The CD does show a directory ‘Boot” and the boot directory does contain files. There is also a file named syslinux.cfg which when viewed from MS XP is identified as a configuration file for MS Office Outlook.

On boot attempts from the CD I get the Error message: ‘No default or UI configuration directive found.

Do I have an error on the D/L disk or is my proceedure not correct?

Coping to cd was incorrect, unless all you want to do is examine the files. To make the cd bootable, it must be burned to cd as an iso filesystem. Try with another cd and something like k3b to burn it to cd if using a Linux system, or use nero if using windows.

It still didn't work, but I think I might be headed in the right direction. This time I got a message that I did not have the proper software, driver or something to read the image file. I have not had time to follow through with investigating that issue yet.
