You can install both i386 and amd64 (the last usually requires you to
make some changes to the bios in order to address more than 4GB of
it possible to install x386 Sarge? Are there any known issues? Which is the
savest way to go especially when considerating future updates?
I just installed Debian etch i386 on one of these and it works
perfectly, this also brings you kernel 2.6.15 along with udev so no
need for spiffy tricks in order to compile kernels never than 2.6.12 -
etch (testing) seams to be very stable and performs great (at least
when running apps such as Apache, php, mysql...).
Why i386? I have heard that Xeons suffer terrible performance when
running in 32-bit mode. Is this not the case for you?
