I don't think you can just upgrade/change your *current* OS from 32 to
64 (I could be wrong though). You may have to reinstall using the 64bit
dvd/cd's/path/whatever. And yes same programs for all.

No special configurations or anything that I am aware of. And there is
now a beta adobe flash plugin for 64bit. It's not an rpm mind you, just
a tar'd up .so file that you copy to your plugins dir. Everything else
should just work and run just fine.
P.S. Why is it when I hit reply on Petrus email, that it goes to a "Post
To:" and a mbox field instead of just a "To"" field? He is replying
from a subscribed user group or something?
