Has any one been succesful at installing OES and sles9 on a dual core
pentium with intel D945GTP motherboard.

Installing i386 version of sles9 resulted in no networking. This version
did not recognize the onboard NIC or Intel Pro/1000 GT adapters.

Installation of the EM64t (64bit) sp3 release resolved all of these issues.

NOW how does one install 32bit OES on the 64bit OS?
the instructions that are posted
indicate that you boot on the 32bit OES cd1 but it can't recognize the root
partition created by the 64 bit drive

any help would be appreciated
