suse is somewhat fallowing ubuntu in the use of sudo and creating a Admin ( root) account
however there is an option to use a different
password for root than using the first normal users password
so as to using the "admin" password ??
it might be the first non root users password
or a different one
seeing as you also want to install the 64 bit version
it is not really possible to do an inplace upgrade from 32 bit to 64 bit
( you might be able to but it will be way easier to do a new install
i recommend using the torrent
also unless you are one of the people that LIKE Gnome 3
install KDE4 desktop
if you use a lot of gtk gui programs using kde is no problem
it is not possible to do an inplace upgrade from 32 bit to 64 bit
a new fresh install is needed
I'm still pretty dum with this.
no , just new .Linux is NOT Microsoft windows and most people have never even installed a Windows OS
things are just different
you might want to re-read the suse documentation
-- install guide and basic use --
also SUSE has an install option for programs called " one-click"
it makes things easy -- too easy .
BUT i do not recommend
it is much better to learn how to do things ,than let scripts auto do everything
I take it you have used Windows OS's for more than a few years . so learning to use a linux OS will take a bit of time
---- a bit of a warning ----
SUSE dose things a bit DIFFERENT than EVERY OTHER rpm based distro
so most red hat RHEL / CentOS / Fedora documentation and guides will NOT apply
some will but not most
you do need to use the novell documentation
