well, you can recompiel your kernel after slack is installed and have kernel support for 64bit extensions, but slack10 as is does nto make use of 64bit, it will run onit just fine, but then again so would windows, so really you are not getting anything special. In order to make use of the 64 bit extensions you need to install a 64bit optimized/compiled system. You can use gentoo for amd64, I have also heard there is a mandrake/fedora/debian for 64 bit, never head of one for slack though.
I myself use gentoo amd64 for my brand spanking new nforce4 + athlon64 3500 setup
thanks for pointing that out....
i suspect, i'll be trudging along at 32-bit until i get decent internet access to this site....
as i have a contract on the table and can't waste time on this at the moment
(but i'm looking forward to recompiling to support the ATI 9600 XT card)
