Linux Mint x86_64?

I tried looking for the 64 bit download ISO. Is this not available or am I completely over-looking it?

So then currently is there a kernel module that will allow large RAM usage?

I think the Ubuntu 32bit server kernel will support up to 4GB, but I'm not sure about running it in a desktop environment. You might try googling the subject. I would venture to guess that the server kernel would be void of most of the X related modules.

Yes - I prefer to keep server builds for just servers. I will just wait until the 64 bit version is released.
