Make sure that you do not have a CD or DVD in the other CD/DVD drive

If it really says:
"No Source found at 'cd:///;devices=/dec/dhb
' then something is defenitely wrong. I assume it is "/dev/hdb", not "/dec/hdb". I would suspect the DVD itself. Try to get another one...

Ok people As I type Suse 10 Now is being installed I found the solution to my problem, I was burning the images with Nero 6.x, now I Burned the Images with the new version ( NERO 7 Premium ) and its working all just fine

aparently this new ISO images have some instructions that old versions of burning software does not support or something... so there you go !

Hope some1 can find this tip useful some day
