You need the driver that matches your operating system and your processor. As far as OS goes, SuSE is Linux, not FreeBSD, so rule out the BSD driver.

As far as CPU goes, you almost assuredly need the IA32 driver. If you had an IA64, you'd know it (since they cost about 10 to 15 times more than their 32-bit Pentium "cousins" -- which they're completely incompatible with).

You can't use the AMD64 driver unless you have a 64-bit CPU made by AMD -- either the just-released Opteron server chip, or the not-yet-out Athlon64 chip. You don't have an Athlon64, so unless you paid good money for an Opteron, don't bother with the AMD64 drivers either.
