Re: x86 or x86_64 ISO Download



Hi,

Here's the result:

[root mars root]# /root>cat /proc/cpuinfo
processor       : 0
vendor_id       : AuthenticAMD
cpu family      : 6
model           : 4
model name      : AMD Athlon(tm) Processor
stepping        : 2
cpu MHz         : 908.979
cache size      : 256 KB
fdiv_bug        : no
hlt_bug         : no
f00f_bug        : no
coma_bug        : no
fpu             : yes
fpu_exception   : yes
cpuid level     : 1
wp              : yes
flags           : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat 
pse36 mmx fxsr syscall mmxext 3dnowext 3dnow
bogomips        : 1815.34


Does it mean I need to get the x86_64 ISO?

Thanks,

-Ray
