I went to Amazon.com and just ordered the Zoom H2 recorder bundled
with the BlueProton card reader and a 4GB Sandisk memory card. I
selected free shipping from Amazon.com and paid shipping from
BlueProton. Total price was 220.56USD.
By going with the BlueProton card reader, my thoughts are that it now
doesn't matter what operating system I'm using. The USB card reader
will be recognized by openSUSE 10.2, so I can copy the sound recording
files directly from the memory card without using the Zoom H2. The
manual for the Zoom H2 specifically stated not to use the computer to
delete the files off the memory card, but to use the Zoom H2 to manage
the files. Thus I'll be following the manual guidelines and letting
the Zoom H2 manage files on the memory card, and just copy the wanted
files through the USB card reader into openSUSE 10.2 for processing.
It may turn out that the Zoom H2 is correctly recognized by openSUSE
10.2. In which case I can see if it's possible to use the Zoom H2 as
a USB microphone.
Thanks Tom, and everyone, for the replies and assistance. It's greatly
