No more cable chewing, I hope?

My point was only that you will find 10.0 DVD and CD .iso images but not an
FTP installation source at or on the mirrors.

You're welcome! They are both great resources. Packman provides a lot of
multimedia libraries and programs (my favorite bundle is MPlayer +
mplayerplugin + w32codec-all.) Guru provides a lot of development and systems
administration tools. There are other community-maintained repositories but I
have to update my list.

Are you aware that Novell/SUSE Linux 10.1 has been released? It is noticably
faster, at least on my circa 2001 hardware. You should have a test
drive ;-) ...

The download links and instructions are at:

Note the "Documentation" link at the top of the left sidebar... very helpful
info there!

Take care and enjoy 10.1 if you decide to try it. And here is a virtual dog
treat: x--x
