[clug-talk] FC3 on 64b System...

Not sure (don't care) about FC, but with Gentoo, and Suse, the answer would be 
3.  I'd bet money that the answer will be the same for FC.

Having said that though, keep in mind, this will depend on your architecture.  
My AMD 64 can run either 64 or 32 bit code.  If you have an Itanium, this 
likely won't run the 32 bit stuff.  If you have a P4, it won't run the 64 bit 
stuff.  If you have a Xeon with 64 bit support, I'd guess that it will work 
similar to the AMD but at twice the cost and half the speed.

How's that for an email which answers the question and TOTALLY reeks of 
personal bias.
