Debian on old laptop
 
Hello

I want to install a Linux server on my old Laptop and use it as a server.
I'm thinking on use Debian. But i can't find a X-86 architecture with 64-bit and i need to use more than the 2 GB ram the 32-bit allows.
Are there any way that I can install it on my laptop with 64-bit?
My laptop is using an Intel I2 duo, which is a dual core, X-86.

if not, will Xubuntu be a good idea?

EDIT: Read the post and promptly forgot what I'd read.

You are looking for the amd64 images. They'll work on intel systems.

I was also thinking of that but I was not sure. :)

Debian names those amd64.

32 bit can use 4GB without PAE (about 3.2GB usable) and more with PAE.
