I have also just upgraded from a very old machine to a K8V std amd64 3200
and the AMD64 bit FC2 version, the speed is just awesome, I cant comment or
give specifics as I am too new at linux, sorry, only to say you will not be
dissapointed.
The only problem I am having is that FC2 will not install to my Maxtor 200gb
sata drive although it see's it, it detects all other hardware ok and
install to a 30gb Maxtor  IDE drive ok. I believe that it might be something
to do with the fact that FC2 does not see hd over 130gb as it might not
support LBA48, as suggested by Paul in my other post.
