Hi. I'm assuming that Joy went offlist into private mail accidentally,
and so am moving back on-list.
Quoting jcs at techie.com (jcs at techie.com):

Um, you might have misunderstood what I wrote. I wasn't suggesting you
I was saying that CABAL has physical media of OpenSUSE 11.1 that any
attendee of a CABAL meeting is welcome to duplicate during the meeting.
The page I sent you to has a catalogue of all the Linux and BSD distros
in CABAL's collection.
Yes, the _OpenSUSE_ download page has moved, I notice, to
http://software.opensuse.org/ . Companies do that.

Well, you don't need someothing as big as a _browser_. You can just use
something tiny like GNU wget. Since you're talking about MSIE, I assume
you must be on MS-Windows, so: http://users.ugent.be/~bpuype/wget/
I'm a little unclear on how you can download a 4.3 GB DVD image if
you're worried about having enough room for a Web browser, but here's
the directory containing all the OpenSUSE 11.1 downloads for all three
CPU platforms (i586, x86_64, and PowerPC):
Here's the main disc for i586 (4.2 GB):
Here's the main disc for x86_64 AKA AMD64 (4.3 GB):
Here's the non-open source add-ons disc (RealPlayer, Adobe Flash, and
all that junk) for both i586 and x86_64 (698 MB, CDR-sized)
> 3) I need to buy DVDs; right now, I have only CD's.
Well, recordable media are cheap.
But, anyway, if you ever want to save yourself a whole lot of download
time (and HD storage issues), you can come down the Peninsula to a CABAL
meeting and duplicate anything in our collection. Of course, that is
often not convenient for people, but the offer's open. (CABAL meets
twice monthly in Menlo Park: http://linuxmafia.com/cabal/ .)
