The live-eval runs directly off the CD drive like knoppix , you dont need to make any changes to your harddisk

The ftp install is  for installation using ftp , you need to just download boot.iso and then select mirrors and then install , the full procedure yuocan read at
advantage is you need not download big isos and also you can get the latest packages , but you need a working internet connection

suse Sparc is SUSE linux for sun microsystems sparc architecture , this prolly is not for you unless you have a sparc system

The advantage of live-eval is that you can try out SUSE without making any changes to your harddisk and hence see if you like it or not before actually installing

yes the SUSE Personal 9.1 is only one CD.

The ppoed ( i.e the ppoe daemon ) is in the ppp package

but are you sure you meant the server and not the client ?

anyway SUSE comes with both the client and the server

SuSE Personal 9.1 is THREE CDs. The download version is a stripped down version of this on only one CD, but when you buy the boxed version, you get 3.
If you wait a few weeks, you'll be able to get SuSE 9.2. This was announced a couple of weeks ago for early November.
