You need to use one of the links named "DVD^3" in the
"Mirrors Released Version - openSUSE" page above because the path
varies among mirrors. Since the image is large, you may want to
try a few mirrors to see the download rate before trying to fetch
the entire ISO image. For example, Taiwanese mirror was faster than
the Japanese one for me even though I live in Japan.
