X-Operating-System: Linux 2.6.8-2-686 i686


I have just completed a new installation using the
hoary-preview-install-amd64.iso on a box with an AMD Athlon 64 3000+
uname -r shows 2.6.10-4-amd64-generic but the lines in
/etc/apt/sources.list do not appear to have any mention of something
like amd64 in them nor do the package names (except the kernel)

Am I correct in assuming that the installation uses the standard 32bit
apps rather than any specially compiled 64bit ones?

Are there any special precautions that need to be taken when adding
other (non Ubantu) repositories to the source list?
