Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Probably, as soon as ADM and Intel stop doing processors 32bits. The only truly 64 bits computer we have today (at least that I know) is Apple Mac G5. The thing is, the way AMD and Intel are doing we won't go so far...
Originally posted by Jatt_thugz so they are not free then..hmm. I wonder 5 years down the road when all computers have 64 bit processors, whats gonna happen to free linux
well if i'm not mistaken, linux (the kernel itself) will always be free as in beer and freedom. you just may not have the nice packaging that distros provide. you'll prolly have to do it like the old days, by yourself.
Any LINUX distribution that has compiled for IA-64 will work. Yes, you can download it for free and use it for 64-bit x86 processors.
Megaman X, AMD and INTEL has 64 bit processors. INTEL's 64-bit processor is designed for servers. AMD 64-bit processors are designed for both servers and workstations. AMD and APPLE is the manufactures that are pushing 64 bit processors for workstations or desktops. INTEL is now behind for workstation systems.
