I have tried gentoo, it was way to hard. I had printed the whole manuel thing, and even following it step by step for a stage 3 install, it was still way over my head and the end result was not very good.

I am liking kubuntu more and more, but I want to know, will it work with my dual core CPU? And if I get the amd64 version, will I have issues? I don't care if the actual programs will still be 32-bit, as long as everything still works as it should, that is fine. Or should I just use i386?

Slackware and Gentoo are not for a newbie
