what os to select

I am trying to download "Download Community Supported Player" from Real One site. My os is 2.4.18-4GB i686. I do not see my os as a selection in the pull down menu. I am using Suse . BTW how can I tell what version Suse I am using from the command line? The os was installed for me . Please understand I am very new to Linux.

uname -r will show the kernel version

look in /etc/ for a file like SUSE-release


cat /etc/*release
Red Hat Linux release 7.3 (Valhalla)

You want "realplayer for Linux 2.x (libc6 i386)" or you can go with the RPM one. I tend to use the installer though, just as it normally goes withg less trouble.
