    they sent me an email with a special address as i had missed the first time but registered. I'd get in touch if i were you. most ppl seem to have got theirs and I can't see Novell doing the offer again unless they didn't mean to honour it. I know they were hugely over-subscribed.

    If and when i get mine i'll let u know. happy to copy and send to you if you want - i'll pay for the postage and discs, after all its the least I can do with all the help i've got here. - maybe some ppl who got theirs would be willing to send others copies.?

    i don't mind and i don't think it would break any licence laws if you provide the discs yourself and pay for postage.

    Thanks for the offer, but I emailed "Scott" at Novell and he replied that if I didn't get mine by Monday he will personnally send me one overnite.

    Now I have to say that is AWSOME customer service, I emailed him and he replied with in an hour!

    Re: Free Linux CDs from Novell

    Thanks for the heads up - I missed this first time round, but just submitted an application. Says will ship in 7-10 days, but who knows how long to arrive in the UK. I got an immediate confirmation e-mail

    I'm looking forward to trying out Suse 9.1 Pro

    Not often that these offers extend outside the states, so fingers crossed

    True. As we're both in the UK, if one of us actually gets to receive them perhaps we could copy for others. I'm pretty sure this doesn't infringe Suse's copyright as you're allowed to make copies for yourself and do multiple installed from one set of disks. I think it might be different if you were to publically host them for download though.

    Re: Free Linux CDs from Novell

    I got my package the other day. I have Suse 9.1 running on my laptop here. It's quite a nice complete distro. Almost impressive . I had a hard time making wireless and ethernet play nice together, other than that, it was a non-eventful install. I did not have a chance to play with any of the other disks except for the 9.1 Pro disc, and the install routine did not ask for any serial #'s.

    If you haven't received yours yet, don't lose hope. I was one of the very first to take advantage of this offer and I just received my disk set today! I never sent one email to Novell, but just waited. It did arrive!

    I found this thread a little too late for the first go round.

    But left an e-mail address in case they offered it again, and then was sent an e-mail with a link.
    But the link was a no-go, so I e-mailed them and received a new link.
    (Approx. same time as the second offering here was noted) And signed up.

    Received 3 DVD's in a nice little package, beginning of this week.

    They say evaluation software, but they are here.
    Have not had time to play with them yet.
    But they still must be shipping them out.
