I guess I capable of running 64bit OS. I guess I will do a bit of research and figure this one out. I know there has been some discussion about 32 vs 64 bit OS etc.... Does it matter than my primary partition is 32 bit Vista?
Yes, that CPU can run 64-bit, and it doesn't matter that your primary partition is 32-bit Vista. You can still run 64-bit Linux. You should be able to boot off a 64-bit Ubuntu live CD to test it.
