Installing SUSE using mini iso
I have downloaded SUSE-Linux-10.1-RC1-i386-mini.iso.
Can anyone help me install suse from a FTP mirror.
I can get an IP address fine. I'm told to enter an IP address and path. yet nothing i put in works. just says file not found.
please help.

Try to enter the path not starting with a slash and ending in the 'inst-source' directory, e.g.:

Server: (
Directory: linux/opensuse/distribution/SL-OSS-factory/inst-source

I think using a boot parameter like install= should work as well. (Not sure about the syntax, though.)

At first is didn’t work. Then i wondered if it was CaSE SeNSitIVe. It was, after that quick fix it worked great!

What mirror did you finally use that worked?

Please post the exact url; I'm having the same trouble you had.
