Suse 10 disk 2 will not load

I bought the five disk Suse 10. Disk 1 formatted and loaded onto my HD. But when Disk 2 was asked for, I kept getting a window telling me to load disk 1 again. This happened several times after reloading disk 1.

Try checking the md5sum of the CD's with the one at the download site. It might be that they were burned bad.

Suse 10

Thanks for your reply. However, I figured out what I was doing wrong. I will relay it to help anyone else who has the same trouble.

At the end of disk 1, there is a window whith a hoizonal bar on the right hand side as you look at the screen. It is blue. At the bottem of the screen is a message: Dick 2 is next. As the screen had no Next button, I assumed I had to put in disk 2. I did not realize that the blue in the bar was slowly reducung, it was still loading from disk 1. Once the blue bar is reduced to all white, a window pops up telling you to put in disk 2.

silly mistake, but there you are.

Suse 10 is now fully loaded, but so far I haven't used it. I'll report back to tell you how it oporates.

Thanks again'
