Is that processor 64bit?  I thought the Athlon's were still 32 bit Procs,
and the Turion's were the 64 bit.  Interesting.

I was thinking of downloading Edgy's Alternate CD for 64bit and installing
it on my HP DV9000z, AMD64 Turion TL-60.  I discovered through Debian that
you have to install using the noapic kernel switch, and then update to the
2.6.18 kernel and run the iommu=off switch.  Or at least that's how its
working on Debian Etch right now.

Is anyone else running 64bit on Kubuntu Edgy?
