I was having timeout issues doing a net install of SuSE 11.0 on my EFIKA. So I downloaded the PPC ISO, burned it to a DVD and have the DVD hooked up via USB.

How do I boot the install cd to install 11 ? BTW, this will be a fresh install.

TIA.

At the firmware prompt;
Code:
setenv boot-device hd:1
setenv boot-file boot/zImage
setenv auto-boot? true
setenv auto-boot-timeout 10000
That will autoboot after 10 seconds into that Linux. I assume you left the SuSE partitioning as default (swap, / and /home) which means the boot files are on hd:1. If you changed this, you will have to change the number.. obviously also if you wish to pass any arguments to the kernel (you needn't most of the time) then you can append them to the end of the boot-file variable.
Code:
setenv boot-file boot/zImage splash=silent
