sounds like your using the Sparc version of suse. If you are using a Intel processor or clone (AMD), you need a i386, i486, i586, i686 version. Visit and check out the architectures. Sparc is for a mac.

Aslo, please give as much infomation as possable in your posts. LinuxQuestions, as awesome as it is, can not read minds.
