Exclamation installing 9.3 from FTP - none of the servers work

Hiya, I'm currently struggling to install suse 9.3 ftp install. After typing up the server ip, it says that it's connecting but never does. And for few server it connects, but after inputting /pub/suse it gives me the message "Error accessing FTP server - File no found on the server". I've set the right network card kernel module. I tried many different servers (Chicago, Atlanta, Colorado, Wisconsin, etc) I also tried other folders other than /pub/suse but it still didn't work.

Anybody know what's going on??!

Thanks a bunch in advance.

PS: I don't think my specs are relevant so I won't post them.

Make sure your path points to the directory named by the version number your are about to install and does not contain a leading slash (e.g. pub/.../i386/9.3).

It is quite normal that some server refuse connection. Just try the ones that connect.

Ah, thanks, it worked on some server with "/pub/suse/suse/i386/9.3"

Really weird, but thanks a bunch. "/pub/suse" used to work back on 9.1. Thanks again.
