There should not be any problem in running a 32-bit application on a
64-bit OS except for lacking the appropriate libraries, which you
should have no problem in downloading. Once you have Linux installed
load the Matlab 6.5 files and run ldd on the executable. If the missing
libraries are not in the Matlab directories, make note of them, and
then look for them using SUSE archives. Most Linux 64-bit distributions
install 32-bit compatability libraries, but finding an old version the
Matlab binary expects may be needed.
