the suse-servers are for some video-cards that normal XFree doesn't
support yet, so I don't think you'll need these.
What I did:
http://www.XFree86.org tells you where to find a local mirror.
Go there, download the README and the other documentation first. Read
that and decide what pieces you need (downloading everything works
too, but bloats your disk, uses valuable connection time etc etc) and
then download that. The documentation actually describes in quite a
lot of detail what to do when you have all the necessary pieces, and
it worked quite all right here.
Only my netscape-4.04 stopped working, so right now I'm downloading
4.08 to see if that's better.
