AMD 64 bit Motherboard ( Why won't Linux work? )
[b]I just upgraded my computer to an AMD 64 bit mother board. My Windows loaded automatically and made the correct changes to accept it. My Linux drive will not. I am running Zandros and after I get to the boot and it goes through the hardware check and then starts to the login screen it locks up. Is there a way to get Linux to work on a 64 bit and if so what do I need to do to get it to work. I really like the Zandros and I want to get it running so that I can get rid of Windows completely. Helppppppppppppppppppp

The AMD64 chip will run 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems, so there's no need to download the 64-bit versions unless you just want to (I do). However, as of the latest version of Xandros (2.5) there is no 64-bit version. Your problem more than likely has nothing to do with the processor itself, but rather the chipset on the board, since I myself have run Xandros on an AMD64 system as well as several others I've talked to on the Xandros Forum.
