Installation - FTP with Mini-ISO vs. CD-ROM

The title of the thread says it all, just wondering if the install goes faster with a good broadband connection to a server. It looks like it'll take me almost an hour apiece to download the 5 CD's for SuSE 10 in iso format, rather than a quick download of the Mini-ISO.

A good broadband connection does help but it all depents how busy the servers are. You might want to look for a good mirror.

Thanks I found a mirror with a very quick ping response- I'm going to post my own experience after the install for others' sake.
