Applies to:

  • SUSE Linux 10.0
  • SUSE Linux Professional 9.2-9.3
  • Novell Linux Desktop 9
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9

PROBLEM: 10.0 NFS net install could not access remote DVD drive (exits install setup: "Permission Denied").

Apparently maybe an authentication issue when using local login authentication on each net node.

SOLUTION: Use 10.0 FTP instead of NFS net install, and make sure it's user authenticated (NOT anonymous) FTP.
