Does anyone know if version 8.0 of SuSE pro will allow paying customers the right to copy the installation disks to their hard drive and do a complete installtion and further updates directly from the hard drive?
I know, and it will.
Used it a couple of times myself.
An alternative is just to dd the whole dvd image onto your hard drive and mount it using loopback. We do it this way here on one of our machines, and all of the machines use it over NFS... Likewise we use a mirror script to get the updates on a regular basis into our vault and install those from there on all our machines.
(this is on 7.3, but no reason to expect 8.0 to break this)
