Question need help -> installing SuSE from FTP

What I am:

What I want to do.
I want do install SuSE on three Computers, and i don't want to download the whole stuff three times.

What I did:
I downloaded the whole dir
ftp.suse.con/pub/suse/i386/8.2 on my window PC (NTFS)
and set up an ftp server (Titan FTP server)
Then I tryed to install Linux from there.
Etherithing was working well untill the selection of the Packages.

My Problem:
My SuSE Linux installation cant find any Packages.
It only works directly from SuSE FTP.

could someone tell me what the problem is?

Pleace don't tell me, that i have downloaded this 6 gigs linux stuff for nothing.

-> Sorry about my bad English, It's not my first language.

Hi Gurke,

You haven't wasted your time but this may be a little more difficult than you think

You need to export the data using NFS. (Not NTFS!)

Take a look at

Good luck!

If you get ISO images when you download SuSe, burn the ISO images to CD in Windows (use Nero Burning Rom
Then you can install it all ya want.
