Well, allot.

To sum it up...
after using the livecd's of ubuntu and kubuntu and xubuntu 64bit
installing is okay ,its after I install, then reboot, THEN download
the updates.. when things get out of wack.

Dozen and Dozens of times, would not get the login screen.
had to esc login as single users, and do ; Sudo aptitude update,
and then sudo aptitude upgrade, to see if there was a fix.

Then networking issues, with ubuntu (odd)
None, support broadcom wireless card (built-in) as of yet.
Oh, Xubuntu cd-burner ( forget that) did not work, had to 
wipe re-install kubuntu desktop ( did not update) and burn
Kubuntu 6.10 Edgy daily 10.02.2006 release 32 bit.

Now this is working, and have done a few updates already including
a kernel upgrade.... Again. There something still not quite right.
with the 64bit distro.

Running AMD Mobile Athlon 4000+ with 1 GB RAM and ATI X600 Mobile Radeion 
Card. ( this is suppose to be a very very fast system )

However, I notice as now, the 32 bit version of Kubuntu runs faster.. (ODD)
