 I haven't attempted to boot anything into 64bit mode. I boot the server
from the knoppix DVD, and configure knoppix terminal server. Then
attempt to boot the client. The client gets an ip, starts the tftp
process, and then fails to probe for any video card ultimately dropping
to a minimal shell. I'll try the 64bit mode tomorrow to see if I get the
same results.
