I have a AMD Sempron 2600+ 64 bit processor running on a soket 754 ECS
has 256 DDRAM and I also want to connect 2 USB printers to it (a laser
Xerox 3116 and an inkjet HP PSC 1110)
I want to use this computer as a development server and firewall. I will
run Apache 2, PHP 5, MySQL, Samba, an FTP server ...
At a later time I would like to use this computer as a workstation as
well and I will need KDE, OpenOffice 2, Thunderbird, Firefox, Eclipse ...
I have a few questions:
Can I use the amd64 version for this configuration?
If I use i386 does this mean performances will be visibly lower than
Are the software and drivers I need 64 bit ready or will their 32 bit
versions run at least as good as they would do on i386?
Which version do you recommend me to use i386 or amd64?
Thank you very much for your answers.
