This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant.

Do i need a special release or distribution to run linux with the above mentioned processor.
Can anyone tell me if the latter is a 64bit processor. Are the informations provided by the AMD 64 Homepage applicable to the AMD Athlon 750Mhz processor?
No. I run a Duron 750 (a slower athlon). Both are not 64-bit. Any x86 Linux distro should work (though you'll have to worry about speed). I doubt the stuff on the AMD64 page have anything to do with your Athlon. What were you worried about in particular?
I have just seen that Suse has released a Linux for the Athlon64 so i want to if there is a special Linux for the Athlon32.
I am thinking about doing the right move, install Linux on my 3year old computer or buy a G4 Mac with yellow dog Linux preinstalled.
Distribution: RH 6.2, Gen2, Knoppix,arch, bodhi, studio, suse, mint
gentoo is a wonderful thing to watch, especially if you are a coder, but i wouldn't recommend it for a first timer unless you are really comfortable with the command line, and following instructions in a README. Get knoppix or mandrake. you will not be as likely to get frustrated.
