You could just set up an ftp server with that directory accessible and install via ftp. I tried to do this once, but it was taking way too long to download all the files from the directory. This is just a suggestion. I'm sure someone else has a real solution of the files that you want so that you can put them on cdrom. I have tried the ftp install many times and only have done it successfully twice. It seems to freeze during certain parts. But if you set up your own close to where you live, or maybe even on the same network, it should go a lot quicker. This is assuming you have a cable/dsl modem(which you should to download the contents of the folder from ftp). If you don't get your cdrom solution and want to know more about the ftp option PM me.
Are you installing it on the computer which you downloaded it to. Then I believe you could install from the harddisk.

this computers seems to be having windows problems also, alot of illegal operations and that kind of BS and he doesn't have the recovery cd. so what we wanted to do is burn the folder and boot up with the cd and screw win xp home and installing my favorite Suse.
i'm using nero burning rom 5. something does anybody knows if i can make a cd and let it know that if the files that aren't in that cd may be in other one and ask for a 2nd cd ? ? just like when youre installing suse from cd's ? ? ?
Thanks foir your fast reply h3r3tic
