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.
