Greetings all
This is just a quick query on the SUSE linux download
I am really confused (Doesn't take much over Xmas)

How does it work

unlike other distros SuSe doesn't seem to make downloadable ISOs avalable instead you need a boot Cd and then it is all done online through FTP???
is this right or am I on completely the wrong track.

I wish to use Suse as it seems a lot more polished than other distros
I also believe that only Ver 9 supports my Motherboard an A7N8X-X and apparently it supports true type fonts as well (I am sick of crap screen fonts!!)

Thanks Nigel
