Just to add to Nathan's email.
network installs give you a choice of either ftp or nsf. When I
installed SuSE 8.1 on my desktop system, rather than sit there with a
bunch of CDs, I put the DVD in my laptop, exported the dvd (/media/dvd)
via nfs and performed the install that way. We've done network installs
at out installfests for the same reason.
