Hi there,
this is my first post to the list.

I'm a newcomer to the linux world.
I started using it on a regular basis on May and I must say I'm quite 
comfortable with it, even if I have to re-learn a lot of things.

But this is not a problem, I will improve my knowledge with time.

My main problem now is that I bought myself a new computer (described at 
the end of this e-mail) and I was offered an amd64 on which I installed 
ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon.

To install R on it i followed the directions found here

but unfortunately it did not work.

After reading some posts on this list,
I immediately realize that an amd64 is not the right processor to make 
life easy.

I'm going to ask the people who sold me the computer if it is possible 
to swap for another motherboard.

Which processor do you suggest ?

I mean that I'm going to use R on that computer on daily basis for the 
next 3-5 years.

Thanks a lot for any suggestion

Processor AMD ATHLON 64 DUAL CORE 4000+ (socket AM2)
Mother board ASR SK-AM2 2
Ram Corsair Value 1 GB DDR2 800 Mhz
