I know of the two, but the person I was talking with said Novell gave out
CD/DVD much like the live dvd but was able to be installed. Much like
what I have been told is on some magazines. He was not sure which event
he attended that they were handed out. He was able to use the live
portion to partition the HD and then do the install to it. He was not
really familar with SUSE Linux, but was very impressed with this ability.
This is really what I am seaking. Use the CD/DVD to test the hardware to
make sure everything works, then install it to the system being tested.

This is what I am after for the student I work with teaching them linux.
I believe the more we get students to use SUSE Linux the more it will
become the top distribution. I know that when I was doing some schooling
at the Universtity, that apple almost gave away their stuff to teachers
and students. This then brought apple into many businesses. I know that
many of the people using Redhat came to it the same way. They received
their training at the University and later brought it to the companies. I
think Novell could really benifit from getting this into the hands of
students rather than some other Linux Distribution. Students are really
tight for funds so making things easily available to them I feel is an
important stepping stone to making SUSE Linux the top Linux Distribution.

Thanks,
