Yes. Im using an AMD64 Athlon 3000+. Works fine. You might want to
check in with Lee Revel or someone technically in tune with the kernel

I think I'm using an Antec 450W supply. It's pretty quiet. Look into
the Zalman power supplies if you can afford it.
Whatever you choose try for no fans...
More quiet - Zalman definiately.
Zalman fan, Zalman or other quiet power supplies, no fans on the
motherboard or video card, good disk drive.
No - it will run either 32-bit or 64-bit. However Linux has 32-bit
emulation libraries to allow 32-bit binaries to run an a 64-bit
system. I run 64-bit but I think if I was to do it again I'd just go
32-bit. 64-bit systems have trouble with many 32-bit Windows media
types as win32codec built for 64-bit isn't completely compatible (or
just doesn't work) yet. Some of Java isn't as well supported on 64-bit
yet. Flash s OK. No clue whether any of that matters to you but it
does to me.
Gentoo for me. Cannot comment on distros much.
We owe you so much you don't have to apologize for anything. Ask away.
We need to put the universe's karma bit more in balance.
