nothing to do... just go ahead. a very few distros, like SuSe 9.3 displays a Message before installation "You are installing 32Bit kernel on 64BIT processor". its just a message..... Latest version, SuSe 10.1, doesn't pop up that message now.
i have AMD 64BIT 2800+... no probs at all.

Ok so I faced some problems but not quite sure that they were due to 64 bit processor or not. I tried Mandrake 10.1, SUSE 9.3, 10.1 and FC5 and they gave me the error that no hard-drive, CD drive found. These CDs are clean (MD5 sum-wise) and also I have used them successfuly on 32 bit processors.
But here is the twist. FC3 installed smoothly.
Whats the problem?
Processor:- AMD Athlon 2800+ (64-bit)

we use term 'flash' for installing new version of BIOS.
its lot easier in Windows machine coz ASUS motherboard CD is windows based. it has BIOS updater software. install that software. it will check and fetch latest version of BIOS and will ask for flash/installation.
in case, Windows is not installed in your machine, check ASUS site for latest BIOS version. be careful. check Motherboard's type and download correct BIOS file (.rom). wrong version/type can harm motherboard. ASUS CD is bootable. boot from it and install .rom file through updater exe.
