As mentioned in the other thread, you might wanna reconsider your choice of 64bit.
Especially as a beginner, it's probably better to use 32bit instead (as far as I know, the performance doesn't change very much either). Also check ved's post.
I'll check out Ved's post. I chose the 64-bit OS for maximum performance using high-end graphical, 3D modeling, and CADD programs that I'll be using. The 64-bit processing offers more agility when doing real-time 3D design work using a Quad-core CPU.
If it were for just normal stuff then I'd have no problem with using 32-bit OS. Unfortunately that's not the case, I built this computer from the mobo on up just for using these engineering software bundles. It is my motivation behind trying to get the NVIDIA drivers on-line as opposed to just going with the 'vesa' drivers that come with the OS.
A friend has offered me his WINDOWS 7 ULTIMATE 64-bit backup disc with all the codes to activate it. The more I struggle with this Linux OS the more I want to take him up on his offer. What will probably happen is that I'll partition out the HHD and load the two OS's side-by-side.
As a note of progress, well lack of progress actually.... the OS crashed again for no appearant reason the other day, and I have not had the time to re-format the HHD and start over.
Since I'm interested in the 32bit-or-64bit discussion and I didn't really know much about it, I googled for a while and found three interesting articles:
1. A more than 5 year old Tech Report article about 64bit, it's old but it tells interesting things about theoretical aspects:
64-bit computing in theory and practice
2. A post by techieMoe on linuxforums:
Should you choose 32-bit or 64-bit Linux?
3. An article by TuxRadar about benchmarks on a Ubuntu 9.04 System:
Ubuntu 9.04: 32-bit vs 64-bit benchmarks
Those are just some Google hits, but I think they are interesting and well-written articles about 64bit systems.
