I have found the magazine (see prev thread) and done what it says there. I've put all the files mentioned (boot, media.1 and x86_64 catalogs + all root files on DVD) in c:\suse\.
In the magazine it says I should hit F3 and and change to Harddisk and then run the installation and the installation program will find the files itself. It doesn't, instead it says so and launches the manual install. There I can go and start the installation and select harddisk as source media, and it lists three drives: hda1 hda2 hda3 all with vfat filesystem. Is that correct? I'm running XP and ntfs.. Well, anyhow It complaints that it can't mount any of the drives, or actually it says 'cant find directory' on hda1. I have a c: and a d: drive in XP. The third partition is a recovery partition thats hidden by acer (manufacturer of the laptop).
