In case anyone was wondering, VTune works just fine on Suse10, is didn't work from the default install. The driver had to be built manually! I just had to share the good news :)

The user can find system requirements for all latest products at http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-software-products-system-requirements/
SuSE* Linux* 10 (kernel 2.6.13-15) is default supported, if you enter vtune/vdk directory - vtune_drv-32_64-2.6.13-15-smpsmp.ko for SuSE* Linux* 10can be found, this is a pre-built driver for the installer to load in your system.
If your kernel version is sightly different - you have to build/load corresponding driver by yourself, do them in vtune/vdk/src. 1) ./build-driver, 2)./insmod-vtune, 3) ./install-boot-script --install

These steps have to be repeated each time you get an updated kernel. It seems unlikely you would want to be running an original SLES10 kernel.
