Suse Linux Professional 9.3 x86_64 on IBM x336

I am having IBM x336 with 2 units of 3.0GHz 64-bit CPUs.
I am trying to install Suse Linux Professional 9.3 x86_64 downloaded from

According to the README file in the above ftp, the DVD version contains 64-bit kernel and 32-bit kernels.

During installation on IBM x336, there is no selection to choose the 64-bit ( the first installation page should show 'F6 64bit' selection). Once installation is completed, only the 32-bit is installed. 'uname -m' shows i686 instead of showing 'x86_64'.

Has anyone ever installed Suse Professional 9.3 x86_64 on IBM x336 and managed to get the 64-bit kernel installed ?

I have tried to install Suse Enterprise 9.3 x64_64 on the same IBM x336 and it does install the 64-bit kernel ('uname -m' shows 'x86_64').

Thank you.
