Hmm, according to CPU pages the T5600 is 64-bit capable (see
but according to the 7.0 hardware notes it is not:

2.1 amd64


 * Intel Pentium(R) 4 Processor supporting Intel EM64T ("Prescott").
This is fabricated on 90nm process technology, uses FC-LGA775 package,
and operates with 3.20F/3.40F/3.60F GHz and Intel 925X Express
chipsets. The corresponding S-Spec numbers are SL7L9, SL7L8, SL7LA,
SL7NZ, SL7PZ, and SL7PX. Note that processors marked as 5xx numbers do
not support EM64T.
