I recenlty wetn to install SuSE 9.1 PRO. on an older box Compaq Deskpro 400Mhz. I never finished the install do to the fact that there was no Text based way to install SuSE that I could find. Even going through the install menu I was faced with KDE or whatever the Gui SuSE uses for the install. The machine being that speed it was, was taking forever, so I aborted the install and Ran Free BSD. It did great install was quick.
My quetion is there a purely text based way to install SuSE 9.1 Pro from the CDs?
I have a Suse 9.3 installation DVD here but as the Pacmate Braille display is not currently supported by BLS I am hoping to use BRLTTY during installation instead. For this to work I have been asked to give the location of a boot disk that can be used to start the installation or an image of the first dvd so that BrlTTY can be loaded. I'm afraid the specifics of how this will be done is a bit beyond me so excuse me for being a bit vague.
The Pacmate display is a usb powered and connected device distributed by Freedomscientific. From what I've read I don't think it will be detected by the installation as its not connected via a serial port. However, if any of you know how this could be made to work in Suse 9.3 or the upcoming 10 I'd really appreciate knowing about it.
I need to get this up and running as soon as possible as I am starting a job which will require that I can independently Instal, Configure and use Suse 9.3 and 10 on the first of August.
Again, any help very appreciated
