I need to install SLES11 on an old machine that can only read CD-ROM. I've been unable to find a download source for the CD images; all I see is the 2 DVD set. Does anyone know if the CD images are available anywhere? I've tried an external USB DVD reader, but that option didn't work.

Thanks!

If CD isos existed they would be available same place as the DVD isos. (Why hide them away?)

Various installation options are described at

Thinking outside the box...

Could you purchase an inexpensive external DVD drive to do the install?
