Hi all,

If you have an AGP graphics card, you might want to pass mem=nopentium to the kernel via your bootloader. I have had X to crash without this.

Of course for a server, you don't really need X.

No problems with AMD CPUs. It is the motherboard chipset and onboard stuff can be difficult. Check SuSE's website for hardware compatability.
