I am trying to make a bootable usb pendrive from the openSUSE 11.3 DVD ISO (need to install openSUSE on an old IBM thinkpad with no DVD drive.) I see instructions for livecd, but not the dvd and what I can find - doesn’t work.
Help would be greatly appreciated.
It doesn’t work because you are expected to use the Live CD versions for this purpose; you need an Internet connection to complete the installation. The other option might be to use a USB DVD drive and install from there if you don’t have a decent Internet connection.
Or use the network install if your connection is fast enough to download a DVD. I installed 11.2 from the network first and then downloaded the DVD ISO so, I had a backup DVD for installation.
Hi, thanks for the answers.
Unfortunately an internet connection would not be possible.

I wonder if you can make a bootable usb stick out of the network installation ISO - if it boots,
tell it to use as a repo a copy of the DVD in another partition of the usb stick.

I am assuming that you have installable DVD ISO image file. Use "universal USB installer.exe to put SUSE DVD ISO to USB flash drive. It will create bootable USB drive from ISO image. Downside is that it only works from Windows.
