Hi list, as far as I know Intel 64 architecture (formerly known as Intel 
Extended Memory 64 Technology, or Intel EM64T) enables 64-bit computing on 
desktop when combined with supporting software. If I am right, 64-bit 
computing (on Intel architecture) requires a computer system with a 
processor, chipset, BIOS, operating system, device drivers and applications 
enabled for Intel EM64T architecture. So I bought an ASUS P4P800-VM with a 
3.0GHz processor that supports Intel EM64T and 1Gb of Infineon PC3200 RAM 
memory. The system is ok...so why I can't install BSD 64 bits with my system 
???

Any clues, thanks in advance.


Cheers / Me.
