i have a dual proc 3gHz AMD Opteron box that i want to run java on, so 
it looks like i have to use the i386 build (any news on the jdk coming 
to AMD?).  from what i've gathered, this should not be a problem and 
performance should be at least par compared to to running on a Xeon.  is 
this true?  i even seem to remember hearing rumor that the Opteron could 
even run i386 code faster, mHz to mHz, than a Xeon?
