1.0 Remote Installation
openSUSE® can be installed in several different ways. As well as
the usual media installation covered in Section 1.0,
Installation with YaST, (↑ Start-Up ), you
can choose from various network-based approaches or even take a completely
hands-off approach to the installation of openSUSE.
Each method is introduced by means of two short check lists: one listing
the prerequisites for this method and the other illustrating the basic
procedure. More detail is then provided for all the techniques used in
these installation scenarios.
In the following sections, the system to hold your new openSUSE
installation is referred to as target system or
installation target. The term installation
source is used for all sources of installation data. This
includes physical media, such as CD and DVD, and network servers
distributing the installation data in your network.
