Wich SuSE Linux should I download
Hi, I dont know wich SuSE Linux to download such as x86, x86-64, ppc, checksums. Can you please help me? I went to and on left hand toollist I clicked download, then scrolled down and now I don't know what to do. I almost forgot I have a HP Pavilion a630n Desktop Computer with a 144 GB Hard drive and a external hard drive that is 100 GB. and 1 GB or 512 MB processer 3.2 ghz of RAM. Thank you very much.

Im probobly guessing becase of the size of the processor that you have a 686 processor. So go with the x86 option. You want all 5 cd's.

Checksums is just a method to verify that all the file was downloaded, its an method of error checking.

Go to this page:

scroll down to the botton and theres a table saying x86, ppc and x86_64 download disks 1-5 for x86

Hope this helps.

If you have a Pentium processor, go with the x86. If you have a 64 bit processor, go with x86-64.
