Mandrake 10 64 Bit

I am deciding to go with Mandrake 10.1 64 bit beta.

Anything I should know about this distro before installing?

Do NOT try to add a 32bits URPMI repository. If you do that (i did some times :+ ) MDK will have to download a lot of 32bits packages which will remove the 64bit versions. If these are removed you're system will become quite useless (I've even killed URPMI, RPM etc in some way).

URPMI is Mandrake's frontend to RPM database. It allows you to run command to install a package and all dependencies will be also installed (and downloaded if neccessary and the sources are correctly configured).
