This maybe a silly newbie question but please do not flame!
I really want to learn how to use slackware so I have decided to download it. However on the slackware download list there is only x86 versions. Does x86 mean 64bit processors only? I am running AMD XP and if this is so how could I use slackware?
No, Slackware itself doesn't run on 64 bit processors. However Slamd64 is a port of Slackware to 64 bit processors. You might want to do some research on slamd64 however. I've seen some posts suggesting it is kind of temperamental.
