    Hi

    Thanks for the reply.

    I want to get either a R50 or R51 and from the handbook I purchased [with the DVD] - I wondered if it would be just partitioning with the ability to run windows, running the Open Suse 10.3 dvd, then Suse would run without any problems?

    Is it that easy?

    At least oldcpu took the time to point you to the necessary part of the forum. I did read an article recently in Linux Format and IBM were reported on very well for Linux compatitbility. And if you follow the link oldcpu gave you should see what I mean
