Questions about hardware,drivers and peripherals
Before you post please read this
I want to use a new mb with a dual 64 bit processor and was wondering if my HDD with a 32 bit OS(with all my files!) will work?

Linux is not Windows - luckily
If there is not very large differences I think it might just work with the exception of proprietary video drivers (ATI nvidia)
This goes for any change between different hardware.
So in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf set the driver like so in
That should be all that's necessary
Reinstall the video driver
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Hey there. I am running Mint 6 (32 bit) on a quad core while I await the 64 bit version. The only real problem I had was with the SLI video cards that needed a little tinkering. Good luck
