There were some others that may be close to yours. Try searching on
groups.google.com with this search to see if any of them come close:
"installation media" group:alt.os.linux.suse
There are 96 hits and some obviously have no bearing, but others
might . . .

In my case, I've found that to be a fairly safe assumption! :-) But
that's one of the things I really *like* about Linux -- assuming it's
my fault is a pretty safe bet; with Windows, it's the other way

Also a good point! :-)
Here's another suggestion: I've not had experience with this yet, but
I believe YOU keeps it's ftp server list in /etc/suseservers; maybe
you can add your ftp path in that file (and make sure you set the
variable YAST2_LOADFTPSERVER to "no" in /etc/sysconfig).
