Re: [opensuse] Is my machine too old for OS 12.1 ?

I am not sure that we are on the same wavelength here.

Milestone #2, for example, comes on Live KDE/Gnome CD and using this CD
one can also install the Milestone.

I don't know what CDs you are talking about but I am talking about the
Milestone CDs (or even the final releases of oS which come in LIVE CD form).

A "live Linux CD" is any CD (or DVD) that boots to its own fully functional Linux text and GUI environment, including common apps/utilities/tools, regardless whether the booted hardware includes any other storage or installed OS.[1] The ability to install from the live media to HD would be just another included utility or app on that CD.

Except for Knoppix, I've never installed any distro from "live" media, as they have a tradition of offering a limited subset of installation options incapable of meeting my requirements. Most of my installs are from no "media". In most cases I just use an installation kernel and initrd from a NET iso or normal installation ISO and start an HTTP or NFS installation using Grub.
