I wanted to try my hands on the SUSE 10.2 as my friends reported
it quite stable. I downloaded the latest x64 version of the SUSE and
it does not load yast. The system crashes after showing loading yast.

My system Hardware is
Processor : Core2Duo(4400)
MotherBoard : Intel 965
Memory : 1GB.

Is there any particular problem with Installing Open SUSE on this hardware?

I checked MD5Sum after downloading and it seems to match with the one
given in the site.

Hi Arun,

The 10.2 is quite stable, your friends are right.

There is one bug for Core2Duo and Intel 965, but it seems to be unrelated:

Besides graphic card as Masaru mentioned it can be inappropriate graphic
resolution for the monitor. Symptoms are usually the same as when graphic
card has a problem, black screen and monitor power on signal (here green
light) goes out, start blinking, or change color (here orange). This means
there is no usable signal for monitor.

Have you tried to lower graphic resolution or text mode installation?
If not try to select lower video mode or Text on initial boot screen.

In the text mode navigation is using TAB and cursor keys, or Alt and highlated
letter in the word. For instance if you want to go Next, letter N is yellow
and Alt-n would be the same as highlight whole word and press enter. Although
I'm not good typer this works better than mouse. If this doesn't work than
use TAB to switch to that window and then it will work.

BTW, if all attempts to fix installation fail you can use 32 bit version, it
will complain about installing it on 64 bit computer, but it will install it
and work.
