Question SUSE-Linux: SU920.001 ( 64mb-Mini-Installation ISO)>


I just finished downoading lastnight a 64mb mini-installation of SUSE 9.2 ISO and already have burned it using ISO Recorder, and have it sitting on my CD on E: which has a boot folder, media 1 folder, SUSE folder, and content.

In the boot folder there are read me's, loader, boot disk1, boot disk2, boot disk3, liesmich, liesmich dos, modules, rescue disk, rescue floppy, linuxiso cfg, message test (and there is a whole lot more): directory yast, media, products (all contained in the media folder): nothing in the SUSE folder yet: and one file called context. So the only thing needed is what to do next with what I have.

This distro is supposed to work off the "CD" only, so I am assuming I don't have to change any of my files that is convert from NTFS over to Fat32? I presently have this same info running on several other Linux Forums waiting for help, and so I thought to myself that I should let you good people here know what I am needing in the hope's of someone perhaps mediating me through this Linux distro.

Taken from Distro Watch :
If you have a CDR/RW burner, you may want to download the file mini-installation ISO, burn it on a CD and boot from it to start the installation of the SUSE Linux 9.2 FTP version
I guess you just boot it and follow the instructions to install the full 9.2 via FTP.

Just to make this clear: the mini-installation ISO is not a LiveCD that runs from CD like KNOPPIX. This is not even a full distro. The only thing this CD does, is to boot a kernel and allow you to install the distro from remote sources.
