ARGH!!!!!

Stop Yelling!

LOL.

Okay, now that that's out of the way.

From the OpenSuSE installation page
http://www.opensuse.org/Released_Ver...t_Installation
You'll need to download the .iso image for the boot cd, which I'll assume you've already done.
Then you'll need to get the name of the repository that stores the install information.

This is found here.
http://suse.mirrors.tds.net/pub/open...S/inst-source/

Then you'll need to get the IP address of suse.mirrors.tds.net.

From a windows (or Linux) platform, nslookup should work
ie

nslookup suse.mirrors.tds.net

this will return 2 IP addresses (at least now it does)
12.215.23.2
216.31.243.165

Use one or the other as the IP address

Linux has and will continue to succeed, and has garnered a large foothold in corporate america, where Windows is slipping.

Not because it's easier than Windows, because let's face it. Right now, it's not easier than Windows.
However, it is a helluva lot more stable than Windows has ever been.

We've got Linux servers doing small dedicated services that haven't been rebooted in over 3 years. No patches, no updates, no restarts, nothing. Just plodding along without hassle.

Try that with a Windows system.... (I guarantee, it will never happen)

The longest running, without an admin touching it, box that I've heard of was a Novell Netware server that ran for over 5 years, walled up in a closet somewhere. They only found it when someone was tracing a network cable that no-one knew what it was hooked up to.

Oh well, I digress.

HTH,

Nawar

PLEASE STOP SHOUTING. SERIOUSLY, IT IS ANNOYING BECAUSE WE UNDERSTAND YOUR POINT AND WE GOT IT ALREADY. THANKS.

Although the following tutorial describes how to do a network installation of SuSE v9.1 rather than 10.0, I believe the basic information remains both relevant and helpful. Good luck with it.

since the IP address replaces the *host name*
the directory name is obviously the part that comes after that.

ie

/pub/opensuse/distribution/SL-10.0-OSS/inst-source/

Hmm, actually, he's right. They could make it easier you know, post the bloody link that you're supposed to enter when doing internet install! I mean, the only thing that keeps me from succeeding in this is the fact I can't find necessary information easily enough. But I guess they just don't want to make it easy for people to get Linux that way..
