I downloaded the openSUSE 11.1 liveCD(GNOME version) iso & extracted its content to /openSUSE folder in my ext3 drive then added following lines to my GRUB bootloader.
booting occurs but stops with message
‘couldn’t find live image configuration file.’
the idea about installing from iso without wasting CD or DVD came from Stop Wasting CDs; Install Linux Straight from an ISO – LINUX For You Magazine
My specifications are.
core2Duo 3GHz processor,2GB RAM & 40GB ext3 partition .
