Which driver do I need?
 
I have an AMD K6-II CPU. Which driver should I try: IA32, IA64, AMD64?

Thanks,
newbie :confused:

IA32 as it is for 32 bits cpu's. If you had a 64 bits cpu you would get one of the others.

IA32 is "regular" x86 (from 386 up to Athlon XP and Pentium 4)
IA64 is what Intel's Itanium uses ("EPIC")
AMD64 is "x86-64", AMDs extension to IA32 the Athlon 64 and Opterons are using

I wonder when "IA32e" software pops up as there actually seem to be some slight differences between intel's and AMDs 64bit extension to the x86 ISA...but i don't know if that will actually require different drivers i
or something...
