We run, in particular, Gaussian-98 (32 bit binary version) on Opteron
servers w/SuSE SLES8.

Yes, G03 is compiled at least by Gaussian, Inc itself: there is G03
64-bit binary version for Opteron in the price list. We have significant
speed-up on Opteron in comparison w/Athlons.
We run also 32-bit binaries codes translated for Pentium on Opteron.
