Send a message via ICQ to mtrr

IA32, as your machine is x86 compatible.

IA-32 stands for intel architecture 32 bits.
this is virtually every pentium cpu and every athlon, duron, k6 ever, also via and transmeta make ia32 cpu's.

IA-64 stands for intel architecture 64 bits and refers to the itanium and itanium2.

AMD-64 is amd's recent entry into the 64 bit arena and refers to the athlon64 and the athlon64 FX.

hope that may clear some confusion.
