install SLES 11 from USB

Our older servers do not have dvd drives but can boot from a
usb drive. SLES 11 is only available in dvd format;
therefore I will need to create a bootable USB drive
containing the install source. I have never done this
before and have a few questions:

1. Are both DVDs needed for the SLES 11 isntallation or can
I do a full install using only dvd 1?

2. Can someone point me to how to create a usb drive that
contains SLES 11 dvd 1 and is bootable?

I have found several how-tos but none appear to apply to
SLES 11.

Thanks, Chris.

1. You will only need dvd 1 for installation, dvd 2 includes additional applications.

2. Check out Welcome – SUSE Studio , you can create bootable usb sles 11 with this great web application. But you will need an invite since it is not yet open for everyone. (I could create one for you if really needed)

Re: install SLES 11 from USB

Any idea what other apps are included on DVD # 2 which are not on DVD #1? Does DVD 1 has only run time object code and DVD 2 has the source code?
