The 32 vs 64 bit question is easily answered. It's true that almost
everything works in 64 bit while everything works in 32 bit out of
the box. You can access all your memory if you use the PAE kernel.
Although there is a slight memory & perfomance hit, it is really not
noticeable to the human eye if you are using fairly modern and
fast hardware. The only reason that you would want to use the
64 bit every time is if you do a lot of video decoding and other
very cpu-intensive things. Otherwise the 32 bit will work just fine
