Uninstall SUSE 9.3


1) is it just to type fdisk /mbr to remove suse bootloader?

2) how to make floppy bootdisk (1.44MB) for suse?

1. To remove the Linux boot manager (LILO/GRUB), boot from a floppy disk (you can download a DOS boot disk image from FREEDOS.org) and and replace the MBR on your using FDISK. I can't remember if the command switch on FREEDOS is /MBR or something else like /NEWMBR. FDISK /h or /? should give you the command line options.

2. You can make a Suse book disk from Yast. Run Yast and log in as root when requested. I believe the utility is under 'System'... along with Bootloader configuration and other miscellaneous items.

Bonne Chance.

Yast stand for 'Yet Another System Tool'. It is in the Suse programs list under 'System' I believe.

I installed Suse9.3 from the CDs. Maybe not so convenient as from DVD, but not exactly onerous, either.

If you are installing from CDs, you don't need to reset the MBR or have a Suse boot disk. Just set your BIOS to boot from CD, insert CD#1 and you're off and running.

1)download and install UltraISO
2)open the iso of 1st cd(which is bootable)
3)copy the entire contents of the other 4 cd's on top of it
*you can overwrite files such as readme, copyright, gpg-pubkey, etc
*you should combine the contents of MD5SUMS in a text editor (and there was something else, like "index" or "content", which u should also combine)
4)save the new iso (with a different name, just for safety)
5)burn it
