    SUSE 5.0 ? Versions that far back are way before my time.

    I found a link for 5.1 but not for 5.0: https://archive.org/details/SUSELinux5.1I386 (386 version)

    also 5.2 : https://archive.org/details/SUSELinux5.2I386

    and 5.3 : https://archive.org/details/Suse_5.3

    There is a site here (I found this surfing on the web) with the various files for different SUSE-5.0 variants : http://grumbeer.dyndns.org/ftp/cdroms/suse/5.0/

    But these are not images - and I have no advice as to how to proceed from there.

    Talking Re: Suse 5.0 image

    It was S.u.S.E. Linux 5.0 – released July 1997 …It was distributed with 4 CD-ROM – 3 for installation and 1 with a Live system –

    • Whether or not, anyone has placed the CD-ROM images on the net or, is about to publish their old CD-ROM collection, is a good question …

    Hi, I already have the images from 5.1 to 15.2, the only one that I haven't found is 5.0, I want it because I want to make some videos about those forgotten versions from 5.0, 5.1 and so on, I will give it a try to those files from the ftp server to see if I can manage to install it from those, but an Iso file would have been nice, thanks

    If that doesn't pan out, let me know.

    SUSE sent me a complimentary boxed sets of some of some releases. It turns out 5.0 is still in the cupboard. Everything is there, the CDROM-set, the boot floppy, manual, box, even the registration card - maybe it's now a collectable :-). I'd have to rig up a CD-Reader, hopefully the CD's are readable, not sure I can read floppy though.

    Linus-
    Let me start by congratulating you on the 1.2 release.


    Anyways, the reason that I am writing you is that I will be at
    the Decus meeting in Washington DC, and I would like to arrange a
    meeting if you would be interested.
