Did you download a 'Live' Distro?

by robo_dev In reply to OpenSuse 12.1

If you boot from the DVD, it will either boot a 'Live' version or start the installer.

I downloaded it from the Tech Republic newsletter using that link.
If I understand, it will either boot up or try to install. If it tries to install can I cancel it?
Thank you.

I have not tried that specific distro, but yes, there is most likely a way to cancel it.

There is a difference...

by chucktr In reply to OpenSuse 12.1

The DVD for openSuSE 12.1 is for installation. It is NOT for execution. We have a couple of LiveCD versions for that. You can pick which Desktop Manager you want, either KDE or Gnome. Personally I have used a KDE LiveCD to rescue Windows XP data.

Have fun,

If you only want to give it a try, you could run it on Virtual machine. There are some people already create opensuse virtual box image for free-download.
