I've never tried 64-bit -- does it provide any concrete benefits? I've
always been a bit intimidated by all of the posts about multilib
craziness, and it didn't seem like it would be worth it ... :)

FWIW, there's exactly 4G of memory in this machine at the moment, so
64-bit shouldn't make a difference to the available RAM.
