Instead of booting the Freespire CD directly from the DVD that comes with this book, you need to
burn the ISO image included on that DVD to a separate CD. Here's how to do that:
1. Insert the DVD that comes with this book into your computer's DVD drive.
2. From the Freespire folder on the DVD, copy the freespire_2.0.3.iso to your computer's hard disk.
3. Eject the DVD and insert a blank CD into the DVD drive (which presumably can be used to burn CDs).
At this point, refer to the "Creating Linux CDs" section later in this appendix for information on burning the CD image to a physical CD.
The openSUSE Linux 10.3 installation CD lets you install the SUSE Linux operating system to your hard drive from software downloaded over the network. SUSE Linux is developed and supported by Novell, which offers SUSE as part of a wider range of enterprise-ready Linux and NetWare soft- ware. openSUSE is the Novell-sponsored, community-supported free Linux.
To begin installing openSUSE to your hard disk, insert the CD into your PC's CD drive, reboot, and type the following from the boot prompt: boot: suse To install openSUSE from this CD, follow the installation instructions in Chapter 10.
Finding Linux Distributions on the CD
The CD that comes with this book boots directly to a variety of smaller live and install CDs. The live/install CDs included on this CD include Debian (network install), Gentoo (network install), Damn Small Linux (live/install), and INSERT (security CD), System Rescue CD, SLAX, and Puppy Linux live CDs. Coyote Linux is contained on a tar/gzip that you copy to a hard disk and build into a floppy Linux distribution from instructions in Chapter 18.
