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?
