Linux i386, NVidia on FreeBSD/amd64?

I'd like my next machine to be an amd64, but need to make sure, a few
things can be made to work before comitting.

	1) Linux/i386 emulation -- Tim's page at

	seems to suggest, there should be no problems with most of the
	things, does the linux-mozilla and Flash-7.x combo work anyone
	on FreeBSD/amd64? The web-site has a nice
	"application", which requires Flash-7 (6.x will not work).

	2) NVidia X11 driver -- this is not a must, but would be very
	nice to have -- I have a fairly high-end dual-DVI card, that
	works fine on my dual PentiumII. Any hope of getting NVidia to
	release amd64-version?

	3) SMP -- a dual-Opteron machine seems within my budget. Does
	that change the answers to any of the above questions?

Thanks a lot for your time! Yours,
