this is a moot point to me, because i don't have the hardware. i think
i have "em*u*64", according to the bios - my guess is it means PAE -
so all this 64 vs 32 crap is easy for me: 32 PERIOD. and until it's to
the point where at least 90% of people have 64bit (i think it's less
than half right now) of course they're not going to bother shipping

so ha! not that that applies, but so ha anyway!
