Suse 9.1 Install disks

I found this mirror (ftp pub systems suse i386 9.1, I had to remove eveything to post) and I was wondering why can't I get everything here and install it? I understand that you can not download Suse 9.1, but you can download Suse 9.1 personal. So what is up with this mirror? I have never used Linux. I hope to say very soon I don't use Windows.

Talking RE: Suse 91. install disks

If u download the 9.1 personal edition disk, u just burn it 2 a cd , slap the cd in the drive and reboot. However..........

The personal edition CD doesn't have GCC or GLIBc... also, it doesn't have GNOME....
^^ not that this is a prob

If you want to get GCC, (BTW gcc = compiler u need 4 compiling (non-rpm) pakages) u need to add an FTP or HTTP source....

Once you've installed SUSE and are sitting at the desktop, klik the SuSe icon and klik System --> YAsT2. Type ur root password, and klik Add Installation Source.

Now, go to The SuSe Mirror List and pick a server nearest 2 u...

After this, type in the part until it says /pub or whatever under "server name".

After that, type the part after the server name.
For example....
If you are using the mirror in tenessee, would be the server name

and the directory would be

After this, clik "Add" and u should be back to the YaST menu. Click "Add / Remove packages" and search for GCC
Install GCC by checking it in the left side,
and do the same for GlibC, and CPP, by typing the respective name in the upper-left corner

SuSe is a great distribution, and Linux is a Great OS. YaST, the installer and "control panel" , is an excellent tool for linux n00bs.

I wish you luck on this
