Yes.

LiveCD allows to install openSUSE.

http://software.opensuse.org/help_media.html

After the installation, you can adjust your setup and add any package you
need for your server environment, just adding repositories.

Just download the LiveCD ISO and once you're in, just proceed with the
install (there is an icon on desktop you have to click).

Note that openSUSE KDE LiveCD only has kde 4.x.

No, DVD ISO just have almost all packages in one media and that's all the
advantage.
