Hi everyone, the CPU on my computer is an Intel Pentium D 820, I wanted to know if I should downlod the iso from the i386 folder or the X86_64 folder. Thanks.

It is your choice as your CPU can use both versions. I use an AMD Athlon64 CPU which is 64 bit capable. I have used FC5 64 bit for some time and it flies on a 64 bit CPU. The only reason I have returned to 32 bit is because the world is so 32 bit. That is, if you want to use java, flash and watch movies on your browser you will have to install FC6 32 bit or install FC6 64 bit and install a lot of 32 bit packages on it. It will run just like all 32 bit CPU can run 16 bit programsWhen these little things run natively on 64 bit I will migrate to 64 bit. For now I will wait. This is a problem for MS Windows people, too. Perhaps with Vista, Sun and Adobe, among others, will speed up 64 bit development.

Awesome, thanks. I am downloading the 64 bit version for now. I like to enjoy the speed a little bit and if I run into problems, I may switch back. It's not every day that I use a fast OS, so I am looking forward to that.
