I have Debain Lenny running on a 64-bit AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core machine.
Note that this is my first 64-bit machine on which I am running Debian.
One my first issues is that I cannot seem to install the Adobe Reader
Deb file (which is for i386 architecture on my machine.
Is there a way by which I can run 32-bit version of applications on 64-bit? Usually I think it should not be a problem running a lower bit (32-bit) application on a higher bit (64-bit)? But unfortunately that is not the caseclear
debian-workstation:~/Desktop# dpkg -i AdobeReader_enu-8.1.2_SU1-1.i386.deb
dpkg: error processing AdobeReader_enu-8.1.2_SU1-1.i386.deb (--install):
