    Re: Free Linux CDs from Novell

    I just completed by order form today .

    Thank you for ordering the Linux Technical Resource Kit from the Novell Customer Communities. Your order has been received, and will ship within the next 7-10 business days.

    Its funny cause 10 mins after I did my order I told my co-workers but it said the offer is no longer available hahah.

    got mine too - only just remembered to post. Haven't had a chance to look at them yet as i'm on my sons pc. My water pump died and as i'm waiting for my 64bit kit, i'm leaving my puter in bits.

    which brings me to my next question - these discs don't include the 64bit version, or do they?

    It says it does, but the Suse 9.1 pro from the novell program does not seem to have it, unless I did something wrong

    when I tried to install i got the message

    "warning, you about to install a 32 bit operating system on a 64 bit computer"

    Sorry, no DVD writer here - only a CD writer. If you know a way of copying onto CD, I can do that.

    I'm sure Raptor will if he has a DVD writer.

    The problem is the suse pro 9.1 disk is a bootable dvd. I'd need to extract the image and I don't know how to do that without a dvd writer. Does anyone know how to extract a bootable image from a dvd?

    Do you have a DVD writer?

    If so, what say I just send you my copy, you can burn yourself a copy and return it to me.

    Rick hang fire a couple of days i'm gonna email novell and try and clarify the 64bit support. are you planning on installing on your 64bit system or another? If it turns out this isn't 64bit and you want it for a 32bit system then you can have it, otherwise do you have a dvd writer cause i can always send it to you to copy

    [edit]

    scrap that idea, it seems that in the official suse release of 9.1 there are 2 double sided dvds with 64bit on one side and 32 bit on t'other. These aren't so no good to me after all that.

    Rick if you want em pm or email me at cw@raptorx.net with your address and i'll send em down to you.
