You are good Bjarne - you know my level! I have never chosen the arch, I
just let the installer do its stuff. The last two installs have come out
64bit, but now I check the older 64 bit machines they have i686. Why
would that happen? Anyway, I'm glad it did.

I don't think I'm doing anything different from all the other installs

amd64). Has something changed?
But are you sure you installed the 64 bit version, or did you perhaps install i386 on amd64? You can install using i386 on both i686 and amd64, but if you install 64 bit, there is a lot of packages not in the main repositories.
Thanks for the other replies, folks. Jose, since I have only 4G RAM I'm
not going to follow up your idea, (which would be a struggle for me
anyway) but I am excited about those things happening by magic in future
