Sorry, didn't mean to sound flameish. Just wanted to point out that 32 bit 
systems have limitations. 2^32 = 4 billion that's the max. Addressing more 
space than that requires a bit of black magic. That's why IPv4 only has 4 
billion IP addresses... why x86 systems only support 4GB of RAM... why linux 
systems w/o the LFS black magic are limited to 2GB file sizes. For 
addressable space more than that one needs 64 bits... no black magic there.
