Just got a new toy^H^H^Hdesktop system. I'm looking for advice on
selecting the best NetBSD version for a dual-core Opteron machine.
This thing has 4 GB of RAM - do I need a 64-bit NetBSD version (amd64?)
to be able to use all RAM?
I need to run some 32-bit linux binaries under emulation. Do these
programs work under amd64 port or is the standard i386 port the only
way to go?
Other hints and suggestions?
