I AWAYS read before shooting off my mouth. But for those who havent

From http://www.novell.com/products/opensuse/eula.html

"The Software is a collective work of Novell.  You may make and use
unlimited copies of the Software for Your distribution and use within
Your Organization.  You may make and distribute unlimited copies of
the Software outside Your organization provided that: 1) You receive
no consideration; and, 2) you do not bundle or combine the Software
with another offering (e.g., software, hardware, or service).  The
term "Organization" means a legal entity, excluding subsidiaries and
affiliates with a separate existence for tax purposes or for legal
personality purposes. An example of an Organization in the private
sector would be a corporation, partnership, or trust, excluding any
subsidiaries or affiliates of the organization with a separate tax
identification number or company registration number. In the public
sector, an example of Organization would be a specific government
body or local government authority."
