All documentations I know describe it in another way. The above will not allow YOU updates with autoyast2, too.
It was so explained on Nashif's Autoyast documentation.
Now the pages have been swallowed and digested by Novell.
You can still find the "original" pages here:
Why doesn't Suse release SP2 as one complete SLES9+SP2 DVD? The SP2 contains almost the same amount of data than the original SLES9.
Which is not true, SLES9 still contains a lot of more data. Much more.
6 SLES9 CDs compared to 3 SP2 CDs is not a lot more.
The install process with 9 CDs that need to be changed every few minutes is a pain if one cannot have an install server because one has to install it on a customer site. This is not very customer friendly.
It would be much better if at least the SLES9 and the SP2 are each on a DVD but we only got CDs.
The free burn and fire version of SUSE Linux is available on DVD, why not the SLES?
Normally it should be possible to rebuild a dvd from the cds but it seems to be real hard work.
You can take a look at the:
tutorial. But you will need a double layer dvd to fit. I also think that this script is unable to handle SP CDs so you have to replace all the updated packages manually.

PS: Meanwhile I prefer Slackware which comes on 4 CDs where only one CD is really necessary :)
