Using a normal Sarge install then installing this:
kernel-image-2.6.9-9-amd64-k8 - Linux kernel image for version 2.6.9
on AMD64 systems
has resulted in a very stable environment for myself. Mind you, not
all applications are "64 bit" but most of them don't have to be.
Aside from a few enhancments (much like back in the day between
pentium and pentium-mmx cpu's) the 64 bit really only means (to me)
more memory and more bandwidth support.
