I'm trying to install thtough Web SuSe-9.2 (SuSe-9.2 and not 9.3!)

Boot image (about 65Mb) downloaded and burned on CD.

CD boots without problem.

I want to install on a laptop in a home LAN.

Manual installation:

1) When asked for IP-address I type 192.168.1.50: accepted
2) When asked for Broadcast address I type 255.255.255.224: accepted
3) When asked for gateway address I type 192.168.1.63: accepted
4) When asked for DNS server I type the DNS address of the server:
accepted

5) Problem is here: when asked for IP address of the FTP server for
installation if I type ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/9.2, it is
rejected.

As I don't have the numeric IP address of the FTP server what must I do?
