Unhappy Installing suse from 6 CD's for PC


Hi,
I am trying to install suse 10.1 from 6 CD's for PC purchased from OSDisc.com and their tech site couldn't help me and they suggested I try this site. The PC is an extra one 5 or 6 years old with a 20 Gig hard disk, 512 meg memory running at 1050 MHz. suse can use the whole disk, it has no other load. When I boot with disk 1 and answer the questions it starts the install. It even shows a time to disk 2. When disk 1 is finished it reboots with no chance to insert disk 2. Leaving disk 1 in brings up the same install menu which doesn't have any option for disk 2 or to continue the install.

I am trying to install suse 10.1 from 6 CD's for PC purchased from OSDisc.com and
their tech site couldn't help me and they suggested I try this site. The PC is an
extra one 5 or 6 years old with a 20 Gig hard disk, 512 meg memory running at 1050 MHz.
suse can use the whole disk, it has no other load. When I boot with disk 1 and answer
the questions it starts the install. It even shows a time to disk 2. When disk 1 is
finished it reboots with no pervision to insert disk 2. Leaving disk 1 in brings up the
same install menu which doesn't have any option for disk 2 or to continue the install.
