Since a Xeon Quad Core is a 64bit processor, would it work ok with FreeBSD? Or would the adm64 release be better for that chip?

don't be suggested by "amd" in port name. it's for AMD64-compatible processor, for example your xeon
Sorry, I wasn't very clear. I am currently running FreeBSD 7.0 the regular i386 release. I would prefer to keep it that way if migration to the 64bit release would mean rebuilding from scratch (there is probably an easier way to convert an i386 release to a amd64 release). Another poster seemed to indicate that the i386 release would run just fine on a quad core chip.

Would there be a major performance gain with amd64 over that of the i386 build on a Xeon Quad Core?

Sorry, all this stuff is rather new to me as I have been running ancient gear for a while.
