While I have a few servers and a always running test machine...this weekend I'm taking the plunge and loading my main machine at the office with RH4. Hardware is pretty much current and on the higher end. Do I go with a 64bit or 32bit install?
Since I'm a hardware junkie I'd like to get whatever I can out of the machine but I'm also posting in the newbie forum for a reason.
Where will I have less trouble?
While I'm looking forward to making this switch, I still have work to do.
At this point I pretty much use my test machine for practicing things happening on production web servers but it's generaly very basic tasks. That or nix via VMware on my M$ install.
Basic Hardware for nix use:
MB: Asus A8N-SLI
Video: nVidia 6800s
CPU: Athalon 64 2x 4000+
SATA RAID: 3ware9550-4
HD: Striped 72GB x2
HD: Mirror 200GB x2
I moved my M$ install to 2 JBOD drives running of the onboard nVidia controllers
For the gaming habit I suppose I'll need to keep dual booting (love to be wrong here!) but I'm going to commit to this as far I can without it effecting my work.
Anyone see a train wreck headed towards me? Thanks in advance!
