Using Adobe Flash and other 32-bit applications on 64-bit Linux

Hi, I am just curious, what model Toshiba laptop did you use?

I purchased a Satellite L300-10Q, AMD 64 x 2 Turion processor. I upgraded the ram separately to 4GB, but for the moment I have not taken the plunge to scrub Vista. At present I am using Vista as a host for Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Desktop in a VirtualBox VM. I had problems booting the live 64bit CD and then once I succeded not all of the drivers seemed to be available. I had to disable the network card in the bios just to get the live CD to work. Yes, I would like to use Ubuntu 64 bit, but as I only have the one laptop and limited external storage resources and going from what I have read so far Ubuntu 64 bit seems to be lacking or unstable compared to the 32 bit edition. The laptop is only 6 weeks old, maybe in another month or two I will take the dive. Thanks for the article.
