SuSE Linux from 32bit to 64bit
  

Hi folks,

I have, AMD 64bit. My questions here is:

1. Can I convert within Linux or Linux boot 64bit and then change (if the corresponding hardware is already installed), or should I use when booting the DVD is already in the drive?

Or is it SuSE / Novell Linux completely confused whether now 32bit or 64bit are indoors, so I think I did not switch to Linux 64bit need (never change a running system)?

2. Can I use the DVD again or is there an extra DVD with Suse Linux 64bit (this is a silly question)?

3. Is the change in general (whether 32 or 64bit) from 9.3 to 10.0, or there are problems with the 10.0 or incompatibilities?

Thanks in advance for answers

Reinstalling probably does better. Especially to be a mixture
of old and new software to avoid. Conversely: if the installation via the disk partition is not formatted?

64 bit is the newer and the experience grows from day to day.
Unfortunately, the problems with it ..

Proposal: separate disk / partition and SUSE + 64 bit, and then reinstall times look ;-)
Generally the problems lurking in the hardware support and
of the newly programmed software.

Yes, some hardware drivers are not yet 64-bit fixed. IIRC This applies especially for things that are proprietary, for example binary for graphics cards, printers and Wi-Fi Dingens ( "ndiswrapper"). We learn from it: pure hardware with open source drivers should necessarily be the preferred.
