What follows will not answer your question, but might interest you. I
installed both amd64 and x86 on my computer just to compare the performance
of both. After a few test (consisting of creating a tar archive of about
3-4 Go) I conclued that a 64-bit architecture is 10% faster than a 32-bit
one on the same hardware.
Concerning, gentoo amd64, I never had a problem that could not be resolved.
The next step for me is to add a TV card. I hope it will work like it ever
