Yes, but what what libs and programs you may install that are i386
based as opposed to 64-bit. You can seriously 'screw' up your system by
having several programs be unrunnable if you mix and match 32-bit stuff
with 64-bit stuff too much. Also, note that if you're using 32-bit stuff
you aren't fully utilizing your 64-bit hardware.
And btw, it's Athlon.
