Re: [opensuse] Can I ask something...?

One thing I like to do, is keep the ISO file on that computer and use it as
a repository. Of course, if you're running a network with several
computers, you can keep it on just one.
.iso file could be placed as a repository, means that in off line
mode, we can install the software from it? Here you are saying for
.iso DVD in which many softwares are there?? (which could be placed as
a repositories) on the desktop, even for a single PC....?

Yes, you can use an ISO file as a repository. Simply go to YaST / Software Repositories / Add / Local ISO Image and specify the path to the ISO image. That way, you can install all packages contained in the ISO image without having a connection to the Internet. Keep in mind that packages on an ISO image quickly become outdated as new bugs are fixed and new security patches are released; you will obviously need to retrieve updates from the Internet somehow.

The Intel E5200 (Pentium Dual Core) is indeed a 64bit CPU. In general, if you're not sure, go ahead and try the 64bit installation dvd - if your system is 32bit, you will get an error message early on, telling you that you need the other dvd.

(In fact, I think all multi-core Intel/AMD processors out there are 64bit....?)

Good luck!
