I have been a Redhat user since 4.2. I now have SuSE 6.4 but don't like

install the OS and kernel, or the base system, also, it has trouble finding
the directories and mounting the floppy.
Here's the situation: I have everything I need (floppies and such), but it
can't seem to find anything. I know the CDs and floppies work, bcause my
friend installed it on his machine. What am I doing wrong? I checked the
install manual on the website, I think I am just really intimidated. Can
someone help. I heard you could get everythng with the CDs and a dial up
ALL help would be GREATLY appriciated!!!
I'm not sure what problem you're describing.
If your machine will boot off the CD, don't worry about floppies (except
to make a boot floppy near the end of the install for emergency
purposes). If your machine won't boot off the CD, you have to create
some boot/root floppies to get the process started, but rather than go
into details, let me just ask that you post further information as to
what problems you're having.
