Intel Compilers for Linux and OS X* Compiler Installation Help

The following articles help with installation of the Intel compilers on Linux.

BEFORE you try to install the Intel compilers on a Linux host, please make sure your Linux installation has the prerequisities for the compilers. 
Also, determine your needs and get the right installation tarball.  Most linux users are on 64bit systems with x86_64 versions of linux installed.  Do you need to create older 32bit applications?  If not, download the Intel 64 ONLY tarball, the *_intel64.tgz file.  Not only does this save download time, this will eliminate your need to install 32bit libraries on the development system.
