The install from disk was intended for users who had cdroms that
weren't supported in Linux but worked in msdos (yes, this used to be
a problem). I'm not sure why it's not working now but I'll look
into it. I'm also not sure why you'd want to use it.

Because we like choice.

Oh please.

Yes. How do you explain this output then when I and others tried to install? I haven't heard a single answer from SuSE about this problem.

Loading of rootimage returns 0

Mounting of inst-sys returns 0
inst_execute_yast:903 command_ti = "/inst-img/sbin/inst_setup"
starting yast1
inst_execute_yast:921 command_ti = "/inst-img/sbin/inst_setup yast1"
yast1 return code is 256 (errno = 2)
sync = ok

Beta testers have access to bugzilla. If you aren't a beta tester
then feddback@xxxxxxx does get read.

Yeah leaving us users in the dark of what bug exists and how they are being squashed. Information is power but SuSE doesn't grant us the information to know about the bugs in the distribution we use. Security through obscurity?

oh well.
