I am upgrading a server that mounts in a rack.  Its going on the
cheapest socket 775 CPU I can buy and in a 1u rack case.  All its for
is keeping some log files and doing some simple MYSQL/PHP database
stuff.  Not a work horse at all.  Anyway, is it better to go 64bit or
32bit for the CentOS 5.x install?  I do not see needing huge amounts
of RAM or anything like that on this box.  Would the 32bit version be
more tried, proven and stable?
