    Hi everyone,
    Can I install 32 bit Suse 10 Linux on 64 bit AMD Machine?
    If yes, Well and Good.
    If Not, then what to do?

    Yes, ofcourse you can. It will definitely work. But since your machine is having 64-bit
    architecture , it won't be properly utilised. So the speed burst and other things that
    come with 64-bit machine will be absent!! To make full use of your machine you
    must install 64-bit OS. In this case Suse 10 64-bit.
     
  3. your topic is bit misguided. I thought 32bit linux is challenging 64bit AMD. :D
