Support for EM64T in SLES9

Just to clarify: the products I see on the SuSE page are:

SUSE SLES 9 for x86
SUSE SLES 9 for AMD64 and Intel EM64T

not "SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server 9 for X86 and AMD64/Intel EM64T".

So, I have 35 ProLiant DL360s coming into my production environment,
which are certified by HP and SuSE.  Under SuSE 8, I ran SLES 8 for x86,
because SLES 8 did not have a version with EM64T support.  However, the
server incorporates EM64T technology.  That means for my SAP servers I
have to run SLES 9 for x86, not SLES 9 for AMD64/Intel EM64T, correct?

the SLES 9 version is called "SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server 9 for X86 and
AMD64/Intel EM64T", so similar to the Professional edition the 64 Bit
comes with the usual x86 distribution - unfortunately the 64 Bit
extension is
not yet supported for usage in SAP environments.
