Moving forward, we are at a similar point to where CDs were replacing
floppies. One of the reasons I have always preferred SuSE over Red Hat,
Mandrake and other media distros is that just about everything is included.
But, in SuSE 9.2, the system lacks some packages on the CDs and the
multi-layered DVD may not be readable on all DVD readers.

Considering the recent price increase, would it have cost that much to
add a 6th CD to cover the additional Packages? I think that would be
cheaper than putting in a new DVD reader on some of these older
machines (like mine).

Well, if the earlier post has merit, and we are actually getting 7.5G of data on the DVD's then it would take 10.714285714285714285714285714286 CD's per DVD for a total of 21.428571428571428571428571428571 CD's. At any rate, the repeating nature of the fractional part of the numbers looked cool. ; - )
