This is strange. I recieved mine this morning but i did not recieve the email stating it had been shipped?

Plus the disks have evaluation software written all over them!?

Maybe i just need to read it better as i only got a little read before i left for work this morning.

I ordered it and got the confirmation email right away.

However, since I have never used a linux anything and am going to install side by side with my winxp, I am/will be a noob at it and am asking for suggestions and helpful tell-alls about linux.

I have always used MS...98,98SE,ME,XP.

Don't know a thing about Linux.

I got my confirmation e-mail on the 28th aswell and it arrived this morning. I don't know what I've been sent as I was at work when it arrived but my other half called me and asked what I'd sent off to America for (I guess she figured it was porn or something) :)

Anyway, I got three discs but as I haven't seen them I'm left wondering what exactly I've recieved. Kinda hoping for Suse Pro 9 so I can have a real play with it. Never done much with Suse but I've heard that its one of the better distros (please don't take this an an open invitation for a flame war on "this distro is better than the other one" etc.........)

Suppose I'll have to wait til I get home so I can have a look - its funny, I was just thinking about downloading Mandrake 10 but now I'm not so sure :)

Eval in the way of a (for example) 30-day limit? Or eval in the way of no support?

I'm not sure I've not installed it but if someone who has could let us know that would be great

What does it actually say on the discs - can't quite read them. Oh and what are they BTW???

This is the readme form DVD disc 1.

README - General Notes

for Novell 2004 Linux Resource Kit - DVD 1A, DVD 1B and DVD 1C

DVD 1A

SLES 8 has four CD Images in .ISO format. The first of which is

the SLES 8 Installation CD-ROM. The next three CDs are the United

Linux package and will be refered to as United Linux CD 1 to 3 in

the installation program. Write these CDs to CD-Recordable or

Rewritable media, boot to the SLES 8 Installation CD-ROM and follow

the prompts.

Other Novell software is included, such as Nterprise Linux Services,

GroupWise 6.5.1, RedCarpet Enterprise Server, etc.

Installation requires that these images be either recorded to CD or

mounted with 'mount -t iso9660 -o loop <image.iso> </mountlocation>'.

From there, you can run the install scripts included for each product.

DVD 1B

SuSE Linux Professional 8.2 is included as individual CD Images

in .ISO format. To install that version you will need to write all

images to seperate CDs using most popular CD Recording software

packages. You will then be able to boot using CD 1 of the SuSE

package and installation will continue using the other CDs when

needed.

The Ximian Desktop 2 is also provided on this DVD as a CD ISO image.

XD2 requires a SUSE Linux Professional 8.2 system (not 9.1).

DVD 1C --- **I used this DVD to install SUSE 9.1**

SuSE Linux Professional 9.1 DVD is a bootable disc that requires BIOS

support for bootable CD/DVD media and a DVD-ROM Drive. Booting the

SuSE Linux Professional 9.1 DVD will allow you to choose to

boot to the hard drive, install the product, or perform recovery

functions. Once you've selected an installation option you will be

brought into SuSE's YaST system to configure your installation.

This bootable DVD is not readable in Windows.

As you seem to have installed it, you should be able to tell us what the evaluation means then.

Is there a time-limit or is it just unsupported software?

Its just strange that they said i would get a confirmation email when it is shipped but i didnt. I got the original email stating, thanks for your request blah blah blah, but nothing on the fact it had been shipped.

Still at least i have them now, so i can go home and install it tonight.

So they are evaluation products but don't have any limitation on usage - is that what you are saying? (No time limit or similiar things)

The software is for evaluation purposes, there is no limit on them, they are not feature crippled or anything like that.

It's the full package pretty much. (Minus the huge manuals and etc.)
