  • First off you'll need to have a working CD burner under in your current OS and about 700MB of free space.
  • Next download everything from ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/current. Under linux it is as easy as: wget -r ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/current/.
  • Then, cd into the disks directory and create the boot disk for yor current set up. Under windows you'll want to use rawrite and under Linux and BSD you'll use

Code:
dd if=FILENAME of=/dev/FLOPPYNAME.
  • Now burn the files directly to CD from the so that you have a mirror of whats at the i386 ftp site.


  • Reboot with the floppy(s) and have fun!
