    Hello aysad,

    You can download the ISO's from here :
    ftp://support-ftp.suse.com/out/SLES9-s390.tar.gz

    I would not wait too long with that, otherwise a clean-up policy on our FTP server may delete this again

    Enjoy !!
    Hans

    PS: Malcolm, thanks a lot for pointing this out !

    For what it is worth, I too downloaded it and calculated the following
    md5sum, just for comparison purposes:

    Good luck.

    installed and running.

    IPL'd off of SP4 CD1 from support element, used basic installer in Operating System messages, pointed to NFS Installation source on another PC Linux created with this basic method: https://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/feature/15522.html

    YaST wanted both SP4 CD1&2 as well as the original CD1 for some things (it might have gone to the original CD2 also, I can't recall). Anyhow, what is installed now is essentially SP4 in minimal configuration.

    Thanks again all for your help!
