 A quick look at the SUSE 9.1 beta

"The default install took about an hour and a half on my 800MHz VIA-based test machine with 128MB of RAM, and required three CDs. Almost all the installed software came off the first CD, and it took almost an hour to read it. The SUSE 9.1 beta took much longer to install than any of the Debian-based distros I've recently reviewed on the same machine. I'm guessing that YaST takes more memory for itself than the Debian-based installers, leaving less available for copying data from CD to disk."
