If I get a chance, I will report back before I head to work. I just finished
preparing my partitions for install and will be rebooting and installing
directly after posting this .

I guess I'll get to find out soon enough. I have it downloading right now.
Assuming the DSL doesn't crap out I'll be burning it when it's done and
installing it late tomorrow night. I'm assuming I'll just have to kill my
old Win64 Partition and install everything over again fresh? At least that's
my plan for now. Let me know how your install goes if you have a chance :-)
I'm so glad that MS finally finished SP2 and has started working on their
other Opertating System Projects again... I'm just itching to have WinXP 64
go gold.

I booted from the 1218 disk, did a repair install over 1069 and was able to
keep my old configuration. It worked perfectly.

For starters, it looks much more like a finished operating system. The
log-on and log-off are like XP, themes are enabled, sytem restore is
available, the parallel port works but my printer still isn't supported and
a lot of other little things. There is a firewall similar to the one in XP
SP2.

I wish I could tell you that your networking is going to work but that I do
not know. I do know that my Linksys wireless adapter still isn't going to
work but my onboard nVidia always has worked. What network card or onboard
network device do you have?

The reason why networking wasn't working on your install it's because there
aren't 64bit drivers for your card yet.

I was using the previous release and I could neither use my onboard Intel
Gigabit, nor the capture feature of my graphics card. I couldn't also install
Visual Studio.NET 2003.

For the networking, I installed a D-Link 538 (Realtek 8139 chip) and it worked
perfectly. But that was the only thing I could get around.

How does it compare to the 32 bit version of XP (running on the same 64 bit
architecture that is) i.e. how does xp64-on-654/939 compare to
xp32-on-754/939? Is it faster in any respect?

cheers

For now, yes. It is considerably faster. A lot of that has to do with how
"raw" it is though. Once they add all there bloatware in there, it will
likely slow down some, but the early releases look promising. On the flip
side, it is already considerably faster "feeling", and that's without good
drver optimization. From that viewpoint, it also stands to get better even
as they add the "bloatware" into it. I have a good feeling about things to
come in the future. They won't catch Linux on 64-bit any time soon, but at
least they are putting forth an effort to put out a product even if it is
way overdue.
