Will mandrake work on a AMD Athlon 64?


would mandrake 10.1 work on an AMD Athlon 64 cpu? i only see a i586 download for it, but will that work? We use mandrake in my programming class at school so i was going to put it on my computer so i could work on stuff at home.

thanks

Mandrakelinux is a powerful operating system that is available for many platforms: 32 bit processors such as Intel Pentium®, AMD Athlon®, PowerPC®; and 64 bit processors such as Intel Itanium® and AMD Opteron®. Mandrakelinux includes many graphical administration assistants & wizards that make it intuitive and fun to use while providing all the power and robustness of other Linux systems. Hundreds of included applications make it an ideal solution for both professional and home users. (from the mandrake site)

32 bit mandrake works on 64 bit athlon i have athlon 64 bit computer and installed 32 bit mandrake on mine and it worked.
If you want 64 bit mandrake i think you have to join mandrake club as a platinum user and then you can download it.Being in the mandrake club gives you the drivers for your graphic card also. also ATI cards give more trouble than nvidia

I have a 10.1 version 64 bit mandrake from the mandrake club but it would not finish the install regarding my ati x800xt graphic card.
I am now waiting till i can find something that will work with my graphic card 64 bit wise with 3d support.

Suse 64 bit works but havn't tried to put drivers for graphics card yet.

there are other 64-bit distros out there, that are free.. Fedora has one, and I think Slack or Debian might have one (could be 100% wrong about that, check their web-sites)!

Hello Reddazz
The install worked untill the configuring of graphic card then bombed out.
Before I had a nvidia card a t1 4600 geforce 4 it worked with everything no problems then i bought a ati x800xt with a new computer a 3500 athlon 64 bit and i am a sadder but much wiser man now.
All jokes aside i will get it working sooner or later with 3d support in linux.It is a very good card.
