any drawbacks to 64-bit versus 32-bit install?



  perhaps a dumb question but i have to toss together a temporary
linux box for someone to take to a trade show, so i'm going to install
f10 preview on one of my gateway mx7120s, which has a 64-bit AMD CPU.
obviously, either a 32-bit or 64-bit install will work fine, but are
there any compelling reasons why i might want to use the "safer"
32-bit version?  i don't know of any, but i'm willing to be persuaded
one way or the other.  i have no strong opinions on the topic.
