Dear Tauseef,
Salam,

Specifically, the YaST tool in suse is not free software, hence is not freely copyable. Now that Novell's bought Suse, there may be hope for suse becoming completely OSS.

Well, it is free if you download and install on as many computers as you may like (Over the network). It is not possible to install it through CD, but if you download full ftp directory and copy full directory on one of your network drives, then X-number of users can install it from that drive. That is permited in legal notice :D

So theoratically if you backup that directory on 3/4 CDs and restore full directory on another computer, it should be able to install on that computer aswell. (I don't know if this procedure is legal or not though). All their web site says is that you can not install SUSE from CD directly :( Yet it is quite on the topic if you can backup the downloaded files and restore on another PC for installation )
