    With VMware you should be able to run 64 bit guest if your processor and host are 64 bit. Do you have the 64bit version of Suse installed? You also must create the VM as 64 bit. Also some Pentium 4's are 32 bit processors. It was not until the Prescott series that they added the 64bit extensions. Also not all processors support virtualization since specail instructions are needed. Since you say it is 1.6 ghz I believe it is an older 32 bit processor which would not support virtualization or 64bit OS's.
