Which 64 bit drivers specifically can you NOT find? Most are already
installed/working with a default installation of *buntu.
Also, I doubt you need 64 bit, it's generally less supported and offers
no noticeable performance gain compared to 32 bit in everyday computing.
Best of luck to you and I hope your transition to *buntu or just general
*nix goes well!
