hi all,

i bought a server to convert a bunch of pii 200mhz machines into edubuntu terminals at my kid's school.  however, i didn't quite understand the complexity of using intel based terminals and an amd64 dual core server.  long story short - they wouldn't connect.  this is likely due to my lack of wizardry, however, i'm not trying to be a dual architecture, work through incompatibilities wizard, i'm trying to set up a lab that kids will find useful.

so, it is on to plan b.  i want to swap out the main board on the server and go with an intel cpu.  are there any "gotchas" i can avoid by picking the right motherboard and cpu?  do intel 64 bit cpus pose a problem?  

thanks for sharing your insight and experience.
