Are you trying to create a rescue disk or a disk to install it?  Typically the install disks can also act as a rescue disk.

Thanks for your post.

I need an installation disk, i'm having problems with the server, because it doesn't recognize the hard disk drives.

You can download Suse install disks in ISO format from www.linuxiso.org - you can then burn the disk image to a CD and boot from it.  If you're not familiar with how to use ISO images, please let me know - you don't just burn the file to a disk, you must tell your burning software you are burning an image.

For SuSE enterprise edition, you need to download from Novell website as follow URL:

It has 6 CDs. Download the ISO files and burn them into CDs.

But i has already all the cd, the problem is that i can not install it because i have some hard disk controller card for a Compaq server.

You need to download the Linux driver for your hard disk controller card.
What brand/model of your hard disk controller card is?

we did that already but it doesn't work, the drive is for a smartarray card 641 and the linux version is 8.0 Enterprise.
The server is a HP Proliant 350G4.

Thanks for your support.

How about this one (Aug 2004): - cpq_cciss-2.4.50-30.src.rpm

By the way, you might want to plug your hard disk to SCSI controller (bypass RAID controller) first
to install SuSE on it and then install RAID card driver. Make a bootdisk (boot floppy), change
boot device and swap your hard disk cable to RAID.
