Heck, they could easily download the OSS CD images, use makeSUSEdvd and

Sure you can. The isue is trademarking. Remove the trademarks with
rembrand and you have your own SUSE based distribution.
The best obviously is just to buy the bixes set for each branch. If that
amount is an issue, then there is much more to wory about then the
licence and the bill you need to pay the lawers.

Even SLED at 50USD should not be a real issue if you can afford lawers
to look at it.

Trademarks are a bitch. Novell MUST protect them or loose them. That
said, if you just install a mirror with what you need, you can
distribute all that you like.

Just burn all CD's that you care and hand them out. Novell is not realy
going to sue you over that.
