Don't let the 686 rpms fool ya in the 64bit tree. Those are there in
case you need to install some 32bit packages on top of your 64bit
As of right now, I don't use any 32bit packages, so mine's a total 64bit
system, to include flash. So just depends on what you install,
especially 3rd party to keep it 64bit.
