Installing Suse Linux 10.2 64 bit


i have winxp 32 bit but i do not think it is suitable for my hardware, a 64 bit will be much suitable and in terms of stability and performance. i have suse 10.2 64 bit dvd and want to give it a try over XMass has anyone ever installed suse using disc, do you think i will be difficult or easy installation, any input will be much appreciated.

Your processor must support 64 bit encoding. If it does, SuSE should work. But OpenSuSE is version 11.2 now. You can get OpenSuSE free of charge, from http://opensuse.org

A 32 bits OS runs on 64 bits machine .
A 64 bits OS do not run 32 bits machine.
Using a CD OR DVD as a install media is rather common .
Is it difficult depends entirely on you're hardware is it supported or not by for instance opensuse.
