You're almost certainly right.  Nevertheless, I'll probably give the
64-bit version a try, since this is my first 64-bit system.  Also, on
the eventual "production" machine, there will be enough memory to
warrant the 64-bit install and this will let me see what concerns we'll
have 64-bit wise.  I know there are issues with 32-bit plug-ins
(specifically the Flash player) for Firefox so I'll need to install the
32-bit Firefox.  Are there others?
