I have a server that I'm due to install CentOS on, along with VMware Server to host 32-bit operating systems. Is it worth having the Linux install 32 or 64 bit, or doesn't it matter? Are there any extra performance improvements I'd gain by using 64-bit?
The server spec is as follows:
Dell PowerEdge SC430
Pentium D 2.8GHz
1GB 533MHz RAM (2GB upgrade this weekend)
250GB SATA HDD
The Dell website doesn't feature any chipset or graphics drivers for this server for the Linux OS, so I'm assuming Linux has native drivers built in?!
Thanks in advance.
