So much for the noisy bells and whistles, Yeah The ROBUST WENT DEAD, Thanks
to XP to rescue my system. God damn-it, don't blame on the user if you are
truly Robust you got to withstand more than 3 days.
I will never try it again, What a shitty OS/Linux !!
"You get what you paid for?" Sure, for free there is nothing promising.
At a certain stage of SuSE installation, it will reboot your system. If
I remember correctly, that is happening after installation of most of
the #1 CD-ROM packages. If you take out your SuSE CD-ROM #1 at that
point (what in itself is a rather logical thing to do, and yes, the
SuSE installer doesn't even THINK of warning you from this), then the
error you get very much resembles what you are showing as your error.
So at that point, leave in your CD-ROM. Because *grub's installation*
happens AFTER that reboot. See if this helps you. And if it doesn't,
you still have your "safe haven", as you still have XP to "rescue"
But then again, remember that also Windows is not without sins either.
Because after a Windows installation, all the rest (i.e. all
non-Windows previously installed OS's) are hidden. Somehow, Windows
kind of thinks it's the only OS worthwhile being shown. Maybe it's
because you pay for it ? I didn't figure this out (yet). Maybe you in
all your enthousiasm for Windows can help me figure this out ?
Morale: every installer has it's own tricks. Not paying for the free
one is the only guarantee you're not fooled.
Man was that a cheap troll attempt. Hint, do not use the M$ Linux

SUSE is not OS/Linux, SUSE is a distro (distribution)-- SUSE Linux is the
linux operating system (kernel) packaged with software Novell decided to
include, along with Novel's way of installing it. I tried SUSE once and
was not impressed, I also encountered issues with SUSE.
Perhaps try a different distro. Ubuntu is the #1 downloaded distro
(distrowatch.com), I use Ubuntu 6.10 i386 and am very much liking it. I am
actually going to be removing MS-Windows off my dual boot system very
soon, that is how much I have need of MS-Windows.
Ask for help here *prior* to your install, to know what you are to do, not
to do, etc. You are likely just not used to linux, it is no harder to
install than Windows, just a bit different.

How is USB support in Mint Bea (I have never heard of that distro)? Ubuntu
USB support just plain works which is why I have switched over to it from
Yep, you're right. Never try it again!

Yep, getting gang-chained has to be paid for to be really promising.
I congratulate you for hating Linux because of SuSE. For Linux to be
ready for the desktop obviously it has to be hated just as hard as
Ever tried to install XP with your "Documents and Settings" on another
partition than C: or even on a network drive? That's quite some bit of
work. Linux installers always give you the choice to put /home wherever
you want - no hassle. But you promised never to try it again.
Now everybody: "Linux sux! Linux sux! Linux sux! Linux sux! Linux sux!"
