Just so this thread can be capped off on a successful note. I count the
following on-line *non CD/DVD image* 10.0 sources:

Packman and Guru:
http://packman.rsync.zmi.at/suse/10.0
http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/misc/suser-guru/rpm/10.0/

Base Distribution:
ftp://{mirror}/pub/suse/i386/10.0/inst-source-extra
ftp://{mirror}/pub/suse/i386/10.0/SUSE-Linux10.0-GM-Extra
ftp://{mirror}/pub/opensuse/distribution/SL-10.0-OSS/inst-source
ftp://{mirror}/pub/opensuse/distribution/SL-10.0-OSS/inst-source-java

Supplementary (not "official" or "supported") KDE:
ftp://{mirror}/pub/suse/i386/supplementary/KDE/update_for_10.0/yast-source

And the online *non CD/DVD .iso image* 10.1 sources are:

**Not available**
This was the point where I confused the sources for the two releases when
answering Zhang Weiwu's original question. For 10.1, you must download the
'GM' CD1 through CD5 plus the 'GM-Addon-Biarch' images (.iso files,) and
either burn them directly to CDs or use makeSUSEdvd. makeSUSEdvd converts the
CDs into a local installation source on hard disk that can also be used to
burn an installation DVD.

Once you've installed 10.1, you can add the following optional installation
sources in YaST:

Bug fixes and security patches:
ftp://{mirror}/pub/suse/i386/update/10.1

Packman and Guru:
http://packman.iu-bremen.de/suse/10.1
ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/misc/suser-guru/rpm/10.1

Supplementary KDE (not "official" or "supported")
ftp://{mirror}/suse/i386/supplementary/KDE/update_for_10.1/yast-source

There! Now did I miss anything? :-)
