Hot Laptop in SUSE
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 1.66GHz
Laptop: HP Pavillion dv2000
I've got the i386 version of SUSE installed, because Vista says its a 32 bit system, and not wanting to try too many new things at once, I chose the 32 bit Linux. Would changing to the 64 bit version make any difference? I think my computer would support a 64 bit OS but i'm not sure.

I have a HP dv2000t and it runs Linux fine. It runs cooler than my windows install, and I usually get more battery life out of it on Linux. You have to use the correct utilities to get your processor scaled down.
I use cpufreqd and cpufrequtils to control mine, but there are many other options out there. Check your distro's documentation to see if you can find some power saving applications out there, and how to use them.
I use Gentoo Linux 64 bit on my dv2000t with C2D T5600 (1.83GHz).
Also, on my google pages, I keep my laptop progress with linux updated. So far everything works.
