The story stops here because I haven't
yet figured out how to get 10.2 installed. It seems to be possible,
theoretically, but it needs more research and troubleshooting.

One posibility is to install minimal opensuse 10.2 system on another
computer and make a snapshot of the installed system with tar, put on
webserver or burn that on CD.

On target comp use some live linux distro that works to partition HD,
make filesystems and copy snapshot on the freshly formated partitions.
You can then chroot to new system and run yast->bootloader to install
grub, so that machine can boot.

If 'Frenzy BSD' has grub, you can use it to install bootloader,
otherwise I have no idea how to install bootloader.

If your livecd has rpm and yum or apt-rpm, you can install base system
from livecd directly. Yust put 10.2 sources to /etc/yum.conf and
install with
yum --installroot=/your/new/system install aaa_base yast
and it should install a minimal suse system on /your/new/system.

Good luck,

sorry carl for double posting :-]
