I have an AMD Turion X2 64bit system and an AMD 32 Athlon single core (ready 
for upgrade when I find the money) and both have hardy installed.  I did have 
a problem installing hardy on the Athlon system, and installed an earlier 
version of Kubuntu and then systematically upgraded.  The Turion X2 64bit 
system installed hardy no problem.
