Feature #305308, revision 3
Title: Installation into Windows Partition (Wubi-like)

openSUSE-11.2: New
Priority
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Stephan Binner <stbinner@xxxxxxxxxx>
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
Wubi allows the installation of Ubuntu on a MS Windows System without
changing the partition setup. Users can test-drive a Linux system
without major performance loss like when using a Live-CD, have data
persistence beyond reboot and an easy way to deinstall like any other
application after trial.

Business case (Partner benefit):
openSUSE.org: Having a Wubi-alike installer for openSUSE would be a
great way to promote openSUSE to Windows users.

+ i tried it on a my laptop at home and it works great. *
+ We want that.
+ * but it was quite limited, it would be nice to have the option to
+ install from an already donwloaded media (cd/dvd) instead of network
+ install only. Maybe i missed an option in the installer ...
