The license can be found here:


And the one you guys are discussing is section 3:

3. Dissemination
It is forbidden to reproduce or distribute data carriers which
have been reproduced without authorisation for payment without
the prior written consent of SuSE GmbH or SuSE Linux.
Distribution of the YaST programme, its sources, whether amended
or unamended in full or in part thereof, and the works derived
thereof for a charge require the prior written consent of SuSE

Which means that you are free to copy it and give it away, but you
are not permitted to earn money by making copies and redistributing
