OpenSuSE + Network installation

I have scoured the net, but cannot find the IP of an installation FTP server?

Any IP's available?

If you have the ftp mirror and you have any older version of linux just open the terminal and use the "dig" command with the main directory of the mirror , it will obtain the IP address for you.
e.g :
this is a mirror:
ftp:// bla.bla.bla/ blu blu blu/ ble ble ble

write :
dig bla.bla.bla
and see the result
