    Right now, courtesy of Novell, you get the following FREE:

    - SUSE LINUX Standard Server 8.0 (ISO Installation Images)
    - SUSE LINUX 9.1 Professional (Bootable Installation DVD)
    - Ximian Desktop 2.0 Evaluation (ISO Image)
    - Ximian Red Carpet 2.0.2 Evaluation (ISO Image)
    - Novell Linux Services 1.0 (ISO Image & NLS Companion CD)
    - Novell GroupWise for Linux 6.5.1 - Server, Client & Messenger
    - and more...

    This is an unbelievable deal, and wont last long (I sound like a freaken commercial, but it's true). Serously though, I'm a huge SUSE fan and it's worth checking out.

    PS - Happy 4th everyone!

    thanks to kevin rose for this awesome tip

    It's not that easy to get a dvd drive when you have no job and there are no jobs about :(.

    So you say the DVD's have ISO's? To burn on to CDR :). Maybe I could run them through my Dad's laptop, that has a DVD Drive.
