    Which version?


    Im looking at downloading and installing Suse 9.2, but not sure which architecture i should use. I have a HP Compaq dx6100 computer. Looking at the processor details in the device manager it seems to suggest it is of the X86 type?

    ACPI\GENUINEINTEL_-_X86_FAMILY_15_MODEL_2\_0

    On the suse.com download site it has two that seem to fit what im after - i386 and X86_64. Which should i use?

    X86_64 is for x86 processor with 64Bits procesor type. (not the one you have)
    i386 is the one for you
