Ubuntu for AMD 64 is the same as Ubuntu, only that it is optimized for use with a 64-bit processor, be it AMD or Intel. The upside in using Ubuntu 64 is that you will have increased performance when your ram is 4GB or greater because of the optimized architecture of 64bit. Any lower, you will not notice a difference between the two. The downside if it is that most softwares are made for 32bit, so your favorite app might not run on 64. If you are a newbie, I suggest you get the 32bit Ubuntu instead.

Linux install problem


You are going to create a new partition for the Ubuntu Linux operating system. Apparently, you are trying to overlay Ubuntu over Vista and it's no going to happen.

Before installing the operating system, I suggest that you view the tutorial video clip by clicking on the link.

You have to understand that you only paid for one installation whether it was 32 or 64. But you can google operating systems and a lot will pop up. Ubuntu is popular and free.

Flash player 9 on suse 10.1


NOTE: Since many proprietary video codecs, flash player etc.. are not available for 64-bit platforms, it is difficult to configure 64-bit machines for a complete multimedia experience. Hence it is advised that users new to linux use the 32-bit version of SUSE (32-bit SUSE works fine on 64-bit AMD machines)

Way to check would be open a terminal
type uname -a

If you use 32-bit Follow this page - http://tweakhound.com/linux/suse/101/installing_1.htm
I use ubuntu and to be able to compile flash you need dependencies to be met.
If you need more help, ask.

G'luck

The four things that make 64-bit Vista inadvisable for ordinary users are:
1: No compatibility with old 16-bit Windows apps. This means ancient Windows 3.x software, which most people don't run any more, but 16-bit code can still pop up in the darndest places. Like, for instance, in the installer programs for other apps.
2: No automatic registry and file redirection, which is what 32-bit Vista uses to allow existing software to work with Vista's better user account security, even if the software wants to do admin-rights stuff to the registry and Program Files directory. Many apps still break in 32-bit Vista, but many more break in the 64-bit version.
3: No compatibility with existing 32-bit drivers. Everything on your computer will need a new driver. 64-bit WinXP is the same, and there aren't many 64-bit computers on which Vista won't at least install, but 64-bit Windows also has...
4: No support for unsigned drivers.
