My question is way below, if you are in a hurry... ;-)
I am currently trying to install SuSE 9.0 on some old HW (Pentium
RAM)to have a firewall internet-router-computer at home.
To get the OS onto the computer was quite tricky because the CD-ROM
wouldn't boot and the DISK set failed with a "CRC error" (indepentend
of the disks i used and the BIOS settings).
So i made a DOS-Bootdisk with loadlin on it to boot the stuff in the
SUSECDROM1\boot\loader (or similar) folder.
Then i had to insert my second hd into my other computer ...
