Do you plan adding opensuse or debian to supported OSes?
At this time, there is insufficient customer demand for such support. However, I will make note of your request so I can keep accurate records of such things.

Generally, Sysadmins that wish to use Debian feel at home using FreeBSD. Since cPanel/WHM supports FreeBSD, this tends to be a happy medium for those wishing to use our product.

Additionally, only SuSE 10.0 exactly (of the SuSE distributions) is supported by cPanel.
That's an older distribution, it's not exactly clear to me where to get it. Can you point us to exactly where to get it?

I did find this. Is this the distribution that CPanel is supporting, a release from 2005?

SUSE-10.0-CD-OSS-i386-GM-CD5.iso 14-Sep-2005 16:25 564M

I'm not sure what the OSS means....

I just came across this:
Content: Fully functional 32-bit version of SUSE Linux 10.0,
inclusive useful commercial applications like Adobe Reader,
Flashplayer, RealPlayer, SUN Java and more.

If you were setting up a new server, would you choose an OS from almost 3 years ago as the basis?

Unfortunately, this might be the only choices that is on VMWare Server's compatibility list. See
