X64 Os


Looking to upgrade my mandriva to 2006 I've got an X64 bit processor but I'm wondering is the mandriva anything like the windows xp 64-bit, in the sense that 64-bit windows has apps that runs @ 64-bit but I'm if I wanna run 32-bit apps; windows will runs them wo/ a problem or is mandriva a pure 64-bit enviroment? so I may not be able to run everything I want unless it has a 64-bit version?

Don't know about Mandriva, but I know ubuntu doesn't by default have a setup for 32-bt environment. It's possible to set this up yourself with chroot. I haven't done it myself, but there's probably explanations on this forum somewhere.
