SUSE 10.0 DVD install asks for CD2
I'm installing Suse 10 from a DVD and it asks me to install CD2. There is no cd2 with the DVD for obvious reasons. How can I work around this?

Open DVD drive, close it again, and tell the installer you've put CD 2 in the drive. At least, that's how the fedora installation works, so I'm guessing that the SUSE installer should be the same.

For microsvc
Don't forget to come back and let us know if it worked since yours is one of the first 10.0 installs that I've seen.

I tried this suggestion and it didnt work. To add: I have run into this before while doing an upgrade on another DISTRO, so when I went back and told it to reformat, I didnt get this problem, but not with this one. Clean installing and it still wants CD2 (and its showing it wants all 5 eventually).

I've downloaded:
15dd28b992a6be9ca592b5c08b959bdd *Suse-10.0-0-Dvd.iso
from emule, and I'm having the same problem. the dir /media.2 that it's looking for isn't there. I think this is a bad image (not official)
now I'm downloading:
320976f73076eb96b3c9226c9ae0cb70 SUSE-10.0-EvalDVD-i386-GM.iso
link in this page:
very high speed.

Well it is your own fault if you download unofficial dvd.

You can download the official one with torrent or straight from suse mirrors.
Suse10-eval dvd has the same content as the 5 cds, Suse just put the files on a DVD and modified the image so it identified itself as dvd.

TO microsvc :
What did you download and where? complete dvd, evalDVD, liveDVD?

ok, now I'm installing the eval-dvd and it doesn't have the problem like the one before.
I think it's because the index file on the bad image contains paths like "./CD1/COPYING "(cd1-5) and not ./DVD/COPYING as in the eval DVD.
I guess it's the same problem you got. so I advice you to download this version.
