Actually, you can get the discounted (i.e. reseller) price from the followiing 
company listed on th "Distributor's" page on SuSE's web site:

Kudzu Enterprises 
 2222 West 94th Street 
 Bloomington, MN 55431 
 Phone: 952-881-9303 

Don't bother looking at their web site-- it's been under construction for 
three years.  Call them.  They don't have any requirements (like Ingram 
Micro's $100 setup fee), but they don't accept Purchase Orders, so it's a bit 
of a trade-off there.  However, you can get something like a 20 - 30% 
discount, then sell to your customers at list.

They also sell a lot of other Free/Open-source Software related things-- 
including other distros.  Great guys.


"I went to a job interview the other day, the guy asked me if I had any
questions , I said yes, just one, if you're in a car traveling at the
speed of light and you turn your headlights on, does anything happen?

He said he couldn't answer that, I told him sorry, but I couldn't work
for him then.
