    Question Installing OS on Hp 550

    Hello to all. My name is Tincho, and Im from Argentina.

    I have an HP 550, with 120 GBs hard disk, 2 GBs of RAM (4 GBs in a near future) and Core 2 Duo @ 1.4 Ghz.

    I wish to install OpenSuse on my notebook, but I have some questions about it:

    1) Im afraid about my notebook temperature core. I wish to know how OpenSuse regulates the temperature on notebooks and what software may I use to monitoring this.

    2) I wish to increase the amount of RAM (from 2 Gbs to 4 GBs). What I need to install from OpenSuse to use 100% of the entire RAM?. Windows (32 bits) use only 3 GBs instead of 4 GBs (or more).

    Well, thats all for now. I hope that all of you assists me and I apologize for my poor english.

    Bye!!

    Tinchazo.

    1. Don't worry about it. It will work without issue

    2. If the processors are _64 which 2 core duo are I think, Install _64 SUSE and you will be fine with as much RAM as you can get in it.

    32bit will also use all the RAM by employing the PAE kernel
