I am new to OpenSUSE and I picked it up to use as a server for my small team of 15people.
I downloaded the 11.2M3 (openSUSE-KDE4-LiveCD-Build0148-x86_64.iso) from the official link. I am trying to install it in my system without CD. I followed the procedure mentioned at: Install on PC that can’t boot from CD - openSUSE
But it failed.
Here’s some of the output to help you.

Any idea on how to install or apply the delta iso’s from Index of /distribution/11.2-Milestone4/delta to the original iso images?
k3b and basero give the message that they are not iso images if you try to burn them to disk.
Delta ISOs allow you to download a small file instead of the complete ISO if you have the previous ISO. This is primarily used by people testing the Development version of openSUSE. The deltaiso, available at Index of /distribution/openSUSE-current/delta, contains the differences between the old iso and the new one. Applying the deltaiso to the old iso will give you the new iso.
The program applydeltaiso may take a rather long time to run. On some systems it takes more than 30 minutes per CD, in which case the download of a full length iso-image might be faster! edit] Using Linux
To use this feature, you need the package deltarpm that is installed by default. The syntax for applydeltaiso is:
applydeltaiso old.iso delta.iso new.iso
applydeltaiso openSUSE-11.1-RC1-KDE4-LiveCD-i686.iso openSUSE-11.1-RC1_GM-KDE4-LiveCD-i686.delta.iso openSUSE-11.1-KDE4-LiveCD-i686.iso
If you deleted the ISOs of the previous milestone, don’t worry. applydeltaiso can also work with the CDs in your CD-ROM drive. For example, if you have the old openSUSE-11.1-RC1-KDE4-LiveCD-i686.iso in your CD-ROM drive (/dev/hdc), use this command:
applydeltaiso /dev/hdc openSUSE-11.1-RC1_GM-KDE4-LiveCD-i686.delta.iso openSUSE-11.1-KDE4-LiveCD-i686.iso
Check the sum afterwards as described in Checksums. The process of applying the Delta ISO takes quite some time and needs the disk space to unpack all ISO images.
