Suse 9.2 ISO


The Suse 9.2 ISO is too big for a CD; only for a DVD. Is there any way to break it up?

Do they have 750MB or even 800MB CD-Rs?

I believe it is available through bittorrent as five CD's. but I would check it very carefully before installing it. It's not unheard of for OS's come come with "built in surprices" when taken off unknown sources.

Search for it on Isohunt or similar...

on linuxiso.org it has a 1.2 GB ISO...It really annoys me that they don't pay attention to people with CD-RW burners.

Yup not everyone has the $ for every up-to-date hardwares.
I just used Verbatim 52x 700mb CD-R and it worked perfectly on the first disc.

Try to run the installation from FTP with the small boot ISO. That would be easier than to split the DVD.

Code:
The directory ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/9.2/iso/ :
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You have the choice:

1) If you have a DVD burner, you can download the file
   SUSE-Linux-9.2-FTP-DVD.iso (the file's exact size is 3363543040 Bytes!)
   and burn it on a DVD to boot and install from it, just like you would
   do with a DVD from a SUSE Linux 9.2 box edition.

2) If you have a CDR/RW burner, you may want to download the file
   SUSE-Linux-9.2-mini-installation.iso (size: exactly 67336192 bytes),
   burn it on a CD and boot from it to start the installation of the SUSE
   Linux 9.2 FTP version. The advantage over option 1) is clear: You only
   download the packages that you need:  From the total of 3GB of the 
   DVD image you might only need 1GB for your desired selection of 
   packages to install.

Also, consult the README file in the 9.2/boot directory (same level as this
"iso" directory).

Please verify the integrity of the downloaded file(s) using the md5sum 
command.

ab648822abbd89906adb66f7cddd6bc2  SUSE-Linux-9.2-FTP-DVD.iso
7d70caf05f533bd4827fa3e485667146  SUSE-Linux-9.2-mini-installation.iso


Thanks,
the ftpadmin, ftp.suse.com.

thanks for the help, although I am also thinking about MEPIS and Ubuntu, after a friend is trying to convert me...
