You can get ubuntu for 64 bit, as well as other distributions i think
the software available is the same
I think you hit issues with propriatory software.
OK, Thanks Paul and Andy. I use Ubuntu but I'm still having problems with the install. I posted this problem here before but then solved it buy, ironicaly, installing it by using windows. Like I said before I can boot into the live CD...well actually I can't boot into anything other than the live part of the CD. Even when I choose to install the system to myy harddrive I still get booted into the live session and the install option on the desktop there will then do an install that always drops me into a command line session. Busybox I think someone identified it as.
Really sorry to have to ask the same thing again but why the hell can't I install Ubuntu ? I will have a look at the dcglug archives myself to review the answers I got on this the last time I asked aswell.....
