I use the existing isos a lot. In particular, the isos can be used via
optical disc or USB flash drive. That makes life (and testing) easier.

There are a number of ways to see of a computer is (Intel/AMD) 64-bit

1. Boot from a memtest86+ disc, look at the processor details on-screen and
Google that for more details. Or look it up on WikiPedia.

2. If running a Linux, use this command:-
grep -i lm /proc/cpuinfo

If you see "lm" listed in the "flags" line, 64-bit mode is available.
