Are you guys using a network install? Or is there
someway to get the
cd/dvd to boot on a lappy? Most I've looked at just can't .. at least the
ones where I could get a look at the bios or boot settings.
Most newer laptops do have an option for booting from cd/dvd. I have
installed on a couple brands (not Dell, E-Machines and IBM), and they
had that option and were almost as easy as a desktop. They often have a
different F key for boot options, like F10, F11, or F12. HTH.
I think I've personally installed Suse on pretty much any dell brand since
Hit F2 (it's a Dell, so hitting DEL does not work) to get into the bios.
Use Alt-P to switch pages until you come to the page where you cans et the
boot order, and ensure that CD/DVD is listed above the first harddisk.
Also, on most newer Dells you can hit F12 to change the boot order
