I have a really silly question... but just want to ask...

I have one box on my home network that is x86_64 capable...  My other 
boxes are all i386.  As this x86_64 machine can, at most, house 4 GB of 
RAM (currently only has 1 GB) - is there any advantage to my running 
x86_64 on that machine instead of i386...  Long story as to why I am 
asking - but before I go off and moveit down to i386 - just wanted some 
opinions :)
