    I have these choices for OS

    Debian 5.0
    Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
    CentOS 5
    OpenSuse 11.0/11.1

    all as 64bit as well

    my dedicated remote servers hardware:

    RAM 1 GB
    CPU Opteron 146
    HDD 160 GB (RAID 1)

    what should I go with? should I use 64 bit?

    I've been using openSuse 10.1 for a few years now with ServerAdmin24 but this is no longer available with my ISPs new boxes so I need to upgrade and I have to pay extra for Plesk hence ispconfig3 :p

    cca 80 servers some 32bit, some 64 bit
    with no problems :)

    If you using more then 3.5 GB of memory: yes
    you can reverse more then 1.5 GB of memory for mysql
    we are using java applications, and there are litle improvements in performance

    ah ok I just have 1gb RAM so I guess I should stick with 32bit. Thanks for the tips.

    Only 1 GB Ram? :( .. Debian 4 (Etch) i686 (32bit) would be the best :D

    but ..ok, go on Debian 5 32 bit :rolleyes:
