    I'm fairly certain what you have there is an X86_64 architecture. In other words, it's a 64-bit CPU that's capable of running either 32-bit or 64-bit operating systems and software. I have an Athlon XP 3200+ at home and it's a 64-bit chip. Unless they made that particular model in two versions, I'm pretty positive you're 64-bit.

    An easy way to find out is to try and boot a 64-bit distribution with your PC. If it boots, you're 64-bit. It won't boot at all on a 32-bit-only CPU.

    Thanks

    Thats sorta what I thought, but it's nice to have that confirmed.
    I already have all Fedora 8 ISO's downloaded, so it's just a matter of burning the ones I need to DVD. I'll let you know how things work out!

    Thanks!
