comment Installing openSuSE from pendrive
For the record, to create a bootable openSUSE USB drive, the recommended way is to use LiveWriter. See my answer.

comment Installing openSuSE from pendrive
So you want to install from a pendrive to your HDD? Unetbootin doesn't support openSUSE; you can create a bootable stick with LiveWriter. Did you have problems after that step?

Microsoft documents here that Windows XP supports up to 128GB of RAM, if the underlying architecture is 64-bit. Can you please update your answer?

According to Microsoft, most releases of Windows 7 (including 32-bit), support up to 192GB of RAM. The only requirement is that the underlying architecture is 64-bit. So the best solution would be to upgrade from XP to Windows 7. Can you please update your answer?

comment Does Chrome's Download Manager resume downloads if the connection is lost or closed?
As of Chrome 23 (Dec 2012), resuming capabilities are shaky. You can, however, easily resume a download using wget. Rename away the .crdownload extension if it exists, then run wget --continue <url>

comment Does Chrome's Download Manager resume downloads if the connection is lost or closed?
I was downloading Ubuntu from an FTP mirror. Paused the download, waited a few hours, tried to resume - FAIL. Chrome 23 marked the download as complete.
