Installing SuSE Linux from Bootable DVD...

Alright...this is terrible that I already need help. I put in a DVD. It booted to the options. Then there are several installation options, from "Installation" to "Manual Installation." I'd love to know the difference between the two, but can't find it anywhere. :rolleyes:

But, more importantly, I try and hit either installation feature, and all I get is a graphical screen that says "Press F2 for details" with the SuSE logo and it seemingly sits there going nowhere. The DVD drive doesn't flash at all. So does this mean it crashed? Or is it supposed to take its good old time before it starts working? Because "pressing F2" goes nowhere; it doesn't work.

Anyone have any ideas, before I dismiss Linux as being inherently "un-user friendly"?

Alright...disregard this thread. I just need to wait a lot longer for it to come up. :rolleyes: Well, maybe a good suggestion for Novell is to make that screen look a lot less "inactive," as to not imply that it has crashed.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
