Downloading SuSE 7.0


I need to download SuSE 7.0.

My problem is that I don't see any ISO files to download on the ftp site. The ftp site is ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/7.0

Does anyone know how to download SuSE 7.0?

Search in /pub/suse/i386/boot
(I can't get to the directory i386, but in ppc it looks like this).

There is no boot directory within the i386 directory. And, there is no ISO file to download.

So, what I'm doing is just downloading the entire /pub/suse/i386/7.0 directory (12,803 files). Then, I'll copy all those files to the ftp directory on my ftp server, and boot up my target machine with an installation disk and choose an FTP based install.

That's a lot of work just to install a distribution. I wonder why they don't provide an ISO.
