Currently I am running Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit and Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn 32-bit. I am planning on removing Ubuntu to try openSUSE. Currently I have only used openSUSE in VirtualBox as my past three LiveCDs would not boot correctly. Instead of downloading the 10.3 ISO file again I just decided to wait for version 11.
Now that version 11 is out I would like to download the new ISO and hopefully get to try openSUSE under a real boot. Here are the specifications for my current computer.
I planned on using 15 GB for openSUSE like I have with Ubuntu in the past. My question is… since I have a 64-bit processor should I try using openSUSE 64-bit? I’ve never used a 64-bit OS and I am wondering what problems could come from using one, specifically openSUSE.
Also… since I have never gotten a chance to install openSUSE I am not sure, but will it by default use the openSUSE bootloader over my Vista one?
The Java plugin won’t work, and you might have to do some workaround for some things, so unless you think you have an OK amount of experience, then use 32-bit, the downside is mainly less processing power(not nneded much unless your doing things like video processing), and also since you have an ATi card, you might get better support under 32-bit
It will use the SuSE one, but you can boot vista from it

| Does it use GRUB by default? If so than I should be okay with it. (Used
