Wink How Do I Install Suse 9.1 Pro?

Right ive installed mandrake 10 from win 98, which looking back was a mistake. So i want to try suse 9.1 pro. So i have the win 98 boot disk which i beleive is what i need.
So i put the boot disk in the drive and ask for cdrom support?
Then what?

Uhm you dont need the startup disk, just put the cd/dvd of SuSE in your cd-rom and configure the bios to load from cd-rom prior to your hdd and everything else should go automatic

I take it you're booting from a floppy because you can't boot from your CD drive?
If this is the case, and you have SuSE install CD's, then I don't think that a Windowns boot disk is what you require. On the SuSE CD's there should be a folder with info in it for making a boot floppy which you should use rather than a Windows one.
Why did you give up on Mandrake?
