:While trying to set up an openSuSE installation source for my office,
:on a DragonFly 1.6.1-RELEASE machine, I noticed that I couldn't access
:part of files on the image because of `File too large' error.  I tried
:using DVD image which can be downloaded from one of the following mirror
:  Mirrors Released Version - openSUSE
:You can mount this image using vn(4):
:  # fetch http://.../openSUSE-10.2-GM-DVD-x86_64.iso
:  # vnconfig -c vn0 openSUSE-10.2-GM-DVD-x86_64.iso
:  # mount -tcd9660 /dev/vn0 /mnt

    I couldn't fetch that.  '...'?  I tried prefixing with and
    but neither worked.

    I definitely would like to track this down and fix it before
    we branch.
