question about my type of system
Hi, I've recently gotten interested in assembly so I've gotten to explore the core of my system and memory on ubuntu. I installed it via wubi-installer, I have a HP g-series notebook with Windows Vista dual booted. Anyway, after getting into it I found out that my ubuntu is a x86/64-bit system. Due to my registers being rax, rex etc. But on my windows vista system it says 32 bit. I don't really understand what's going on. To tell you the truth I would like to experiment with this stuff on a 64 bit linux system. But I'm not sure what's going on really, I'm kind of new to linux in general. I'm trying to set up a virtual machine that's 32 bit but I don't know if it's gonna work, what kind of system will it be? And can someone give me some info on exactly what kind of system I have and how I can get a 32 bit version of ubuntu. Thanks.
