OK, thank you for your reply, but I am still not sure, that SuSE 9.2
will work correctly. I really like SuSE 10.0, that is very nice work,
but I cannot get any support for "unsupported linux distributions"
from Borland and need to know that SuSE 9.2 will work, because Kylix
doesn't work on newer kernels. As I said (wrote).

I have installed on my actual PC SuSE 9.2 for developing, SuSE 10.0,
Mandriva 2006, Ubuntu 5.1, Knoppix 4 for testing.

Best regards, TRoland
