This video we look an explain the options in installing openSUSE 11.4. The machine we install now will be the base machine in the future tutorials. It is 20 minutes in length but these are are designed with learning in mind for the newbie. Using openSUSE 11.4 has been my choice. There are many distributions of Linux, I happen to favour openSUSE and 11.4 as it available on hosting sites like Linode. In the video I am installing into a Virtual Machine, if you are following along then you too can install as a VM or on bare metal, a real PC.
