ubuntu a64

how is driver support on linux for a64 distros? i'd love to use the a64 version of ubuntu and take full advantage of my proc, but if it's going to be more unstable or unsupported than the plain old 32-bit version, i don't want to use it.

in my opinion ubuntu amd64 works really well. All my motherboard (asus k8NE) hardware (IDE, audio, net, fx5200 VGA) is supported without problems.
