SuSe install

I have tried live version of SuSe and I'd like to install it but I cannot understand how to install. There are no ISO's anywhere and when I tried somekind of boot cd which should be able to install it from ftp, I didn't succeed to set network. I loaded network card module and then I clicked install and chose ftp-install-option. This didn't work because I had not set network correctly, I don't understand where I should put my internet password and login etc?

Suse install via ftp is only for people on ehternet networking.. LANs, Cable modems, dedicated ethernet internet. I'd assume you were trying to dial in since you mentioned a login and password?

Suse doesnt offer iso's, You either have to have a connection to download the ftp version, or go buy it.

As far as ftp install goes.
You enter the ftp server in the server line, with no ftp://
then the directory in the next box that pops up

I have one computer running Redhat that shares my connection (adsl 8/1Mbit). Can I connect to ftp through that computer? Or should I download all the ftp files to that computer or burn them to cd? Would it work?
