Hi Pavel,
   2.0 means the kernel-release. To figure out, which version runs on
your Linux-box, enter "uname -r" without quotes - or better "uname -a"
for getting the most out of this command. ELF is not a distributor like
SuSE, RedHat etc.. It is the name of the binary format in distinction
from "aout" the older Linux format.

   If you've got a nearly actual SuSE-System (I suppose (!) 6.3 or
higher), Mathematica should work fine.

Peter
