    Any live CD has the minimal programs to start; the first time you go on the Internet it downloads about as many programs again as you have already installed in order to complete the installation.

    But if you want something even more minimal, you can build it at Welcome – SUSE Studio

    You mean by size?

    If so, then LXDE is minimal IMO. But not sure, if it is available for 11.2 or not.

    For 11.1: openSUSE-LXDE live CD now ready! - openSUSE Forums

    If you install from network cd or dvd, you can chose other desktops than kde or gnome, then there is possibility to chose minimal X or command line system, probably this is what you want.

    define minimal, please.. that is, what are you trying to accomplish?
    (a business card size bootable disk; or, are you looking for a skinny
    system for an OLD machine? see system requirements here:
    http://en.opensuse.org/Sysreqs)

    the latest release (openSUSE 11.2) has four "live CDs" one each KDE4
    and GNOME, each in 32 or 64 bit....you can install from any of
    those...they are in the circa 700MB download size and can install a
    usable system..

    additionally there is a 108MB image which will boot and then use the
    net to fetch the other GBs of system/application (which you can elect
    to make skinny, during the install process [but you have to know what
    you don't want/need and do all the deselecting by hand])

    and, maybe http://susestudio.com/ is what you need....there you can
    build a customized install disk...as minimal as you like (no matter
    how you define that: disk size, installed size, selection of software
    available size, memory needs size, etc etc etc)

    if you are looking for a small/light/fast non-resource hungry
    distribution you probably need to get Puppy or one of the others...see
    a previous post: http://tinyurl.com/ylf8zq9

    I spent some time a while back updating this wiki page: Live CD - openSUSE

    On that page you can see reference to SOAD Linux (SuSE-On-Active-Diet Linux) which also comes as a live CD. Currently only available for openSUSE-11.1
