Well that command before did not help as it gave me the above two kernels listed. But I did format and install the 32 bit of linux reguardless. If 64 bit linux is anything like windows 64 the support will be less then spectactular and I do not run enough critical programs to justify running such an application nor subject myself to that type of tourture when trying to learn a new OS.
However for an update I do have VMware up and running and currently install windowsXP on it as we speak. So Once I get much more comfortable with Linux (including using WINEX to run games and what not) I will be doing a full conversion
