Hi,
All new XEON cpus are 64-bit spo use the 64 bit freebsd version.
So this would point to "ia64" distribution?
But clicking op www.freebsd.com/where.html - Hardware notes/View
tells for ia64: Currently supported processors are Itanium and Itanium2
There nothing about Intel XEON ??


368 vs 372 is that the 64 bit is compiled for 64 bit, and uses a little more
space.
what is "368 vs 372" ??

If motherboad is Supermicro X7SBE XEON 3000 with 2 Quad core processors
Intel Harpertown E 5405 2.0Ghz 12M cache 1333FSB and 4 x 4Gb memory, what
distribution of FreeBSD 7.0 applies: i386 or ia64 ?

Why are the ISO's so different in size between i386 and ia64 (i386:
disc1,2,3: 534, 728, 368Gb; ia64: 449Gb, 0,372 Gb, 0,372 Gb)
