linux doesn't run on microsoft proprietary file systems, it uses posix compliant UNIX ones, e.g. ext3. this will all be handled during the installation process, so you don't need to do anything like this in advance.

10.1 uses a SuSE custom reiserfs. SuSE has done a lot of work to make reiserfs actually usable. I always pick the default for file system in SuSE, and most every distro. I will warn you the SuSE 10.1 root partition swells to 10 GB pretty fast. That's if /home is a separate partition, which it always should be. Debian testing is truly awesome. I just installed it and it is the best distro right now. Everything works right.

of course it does... all distributions will come with a c compiler, with the exception of highly commercial distro's like linspire which barely fit in with how linux is used elsewhere.

In order to play mp3's you will need to install certain programs and libraries from the packman site.
http://packman.links2linux.org/

Yes. I can't even imagine a Linux distro that doesn't include the GCC packages.
If you install the kdevelop3 package, it will probably also install GCC, make, etal.

SuSE recently announced that they will be using EXT3 as the default filesystem in the future.

It is not installed by default. Actually, none of the development tools are installed by default if you chose only the desktop installation. You can add everything (and the kernel source code, which you will also need to compile programs) from the original CDs or DVD.

There is a guide here http://www.hdxzone.com/program_install.htm written for SUSE 10.0. It is close enough to SUSE 10.1 that you should get the idea.

Your kernel was probably update in a security update, and the old kernel kept just in case.

You could look at the version of your currently running kernel with the command: uname -r

Compare this with the kernel-default-<version>.rpm package that is on your install DISC.

If it is still updating, can I still turn the power off at the shutdown(hang screen) ? Will this give bad effect to my OS ? Or there is another way for more safety shutdown?
