Red face Suse 10.1 installation

I am a newbie to Linux. I have downloaded Suse 10.1 bootable DVD from the internet. I formated my hard drive because I wanted a clean install.
I have a custom built system with a 2.85 Gig Intel Pentium 4 CPU and 900+ memory with a 30 gig hard drive.
on the screen after the Suse Welcome Screen I choose Install.
Everything goes fine until I reach Installtion Summary. There are 3 headings:
Partion Checks out OK.
Software I get the following error message:
"No catalogue found at "DVD,///?DEVICES%3 D%DEV%2HDEV%2FHD0%2C%2FEV%2FHDD"
Error No Proposal
Language Checks OK.
When I go to Change and Software I get a blank form that will not allow me to enter any data nor does it provide any data. If it would allow me to chage anything I would not know what to change.
If I could get over this hurdle I would be OK...I think.
I would greatly apprciate the help of some kind soul out there who remembers when they were a NEWBIE.
I can be reached at

Thank You

I had a similar problem when I first tried to install SUSE 10.0 OSS from DVD. In the end I gave up, burned the five CD ISO images and installed with those instead - that worked fine. Never did figure out why I had problems with the DVD, but hey, the CDs got the job done.

Thanks, I was afraid of something like tnat. It is normal for me. Nothing works the easy way.
