"I got the professional update version a few weeks ago. This
included 6 CDs, 1 DVD and 3 Manuals. I have already sold off the
CDs, as I've been using the DVD editions for sometime. I think SuSE
are the only ones providing Linux on a DVD which makes great sense.
Looking at the packaging there is 1500+ apps on the 6 CDs and 1800+
apps on the DVD. The update version is intended for those who have
good experience in using Linux so the 3 manuals would be a bit
sparse for first time users. Luckily the full manual is included as
a PDF on both the DVD and CD should anyone need it."
"The DVD is bootable, so put it in the drive and let it go.
YAST2 has been greatly improved and detected almost everything, i.e
my SBLive, Modem, SCSI card (PCI one only though!), DVD, CDROM and
CDRW (although as usual with SuSE no IDE-SCSI set up...)."
"I have 30G of Harddisk space with 5Gb for Windows, 2Gb for
BeOS and 4Gb for /home. So I decided to leave the other 19Gb
available (I deleted my SuSE 6.4) for SuSE and install everything
(except sources). After about 7 hours it was installed. Out of the
19Gb I had about 5 or 6Gb free."
