You have also got the i386 version which I believe you have to install straight off of the FTP site or over a network connection, in other words you cannot make an installable CD from it. This will work on an x86 processor (such as a normal Intel or AMD type). Here is the link if you want the instructions for installing this one ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/current/README.FTP
You will only need the i386 folder if you have an Intel or AMD processor, if you have got a different processor you will have to start looking at the others.
You also have got the 'Live Evaluation Version' , which runs off of the CD's and will not install on the hard drive.
Then you have the PPC version which is for a different processor that I am not even going to pretend to know about
If you want to be able to install from CD you will have to buy the disks from the site as far as I know
hope this is of some help
