Re the medium to use.

The use of USB sticks is really not something to be seriously
considered. Not everyone has the ability to use this medium.
I did see that, but I couldn't imagine who it is that cannot boot from a
USB stick? I actually have some elderly systems that can't,

I have 2 computers which I built a while back which cannot boot from an USB stick. But both computers are fully functional and in goo working order - my wife is using one daily.

but those
are the exception and they're quite close to ending up on ebay.

And so, you are foist these unto some unsuspecting person who will then try and install openSUSE off an USB stick and either curse you for flogging him/her a useless piece of gear or develop a hate relationship for openSUSE because he/her cannot boot off an USB stick :-) .

The way to go to make friends and influence people! :-D

I mean, even my Philips picture frame has a USB socket, if it would run
Linux I'm sure it could boot from USB too :-)

My camera has an USB socket as well but I am p-r-e-t-t-y sure that it won't run Linux from an USB stick :-) .
