Install via USB or pre-copied ISO

Hi there,

My wife’s laptop doesn’t have a working DVD drive, so I wanted to find out if it is possible to install opensuse 11.1 32bit by copying the contents of the DVD onto a memory stick, or by creating a seperate partition on the HDD and dumping the files there. Alturnatively if I create an ISO of the DVD and put it onto either the memory stick or HDD partition is there some way to initiate it to startup?

Or… Just as another option, can I use the current disk so that I can do a network install from my other laptop with a working DVD drive. If so how…
