Picking a Debian Distribution...
I have a computer with the following specs and I'm wondering what distro I should install to have a 64 bit system and SATA support. Should I install the Debian Etch (testing) or Sarge distro and should I use the amd64 or i386 release (I would like to use a 64 bit system...) and is the i386 64? (I'm thinking not...)
I have installed Debian Etch for amd64, however, I ran into problems after using apt-get upgrade where my kernel (2.6.17-2) was changed, I suspect, as after reboot, it came up with a kernel panic that prevented the mounting of my system. I looked around the net for a solution to this, but came up short of a definite answer.
These are the specs of my system:
Asus M2N32 WS Pro
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-core processor
4x DDR2 800 512MB RAM
2x SATA HDs
I have searched on the net on if I'll be able to run i386, or rather intel distros, with this processor, but can't seem to find a definite answer.
Thanks for all the help!
