May 2nd, 2008, 10:54 AM #1Installing Ubuntu - Quick Question
First off, wish me and my laptop luck.
Second. On a Vista ready 32-bit processor (AMD) system, I want the standard Ubuntu as opposed to the 64bit version? (I know it seems obvious, but the 2 choices are 64bit and standard x86 architecture, which just doesn't seem right).

standard x86 for you. I have an (older) AMD 64 Athlon and have installed the 64 bit. Works well so far. It even found all of the correct drivers. When you get it installed, check out some of the screensavers. Really nice.

32 bit is always the safest bet, some apps that you might want to install that are not in the repositories, might not be available in a 64 bit version. I'm using Hardy x86 on a 64 bit machine (with Vista 64 as the other OS) and it's really no difference unless you need heavy-duty 64bit processing powerGift Shopping Zone Affiliate Program on SAS - 10% per sale with unlimited cookie duration, over 10,000 products.

Yeah I doubt you'll even need the 64bit processing power. I am running Hardy Heron 8.04 and its running like a champ....good luck to you and your laptop!
by the way, the Ubuntu forums is a great place the trouble shoot some of the hardware problems you may face....
