Ok, I'm getting ready to build a system, and I will be running a dual boot with Windows and Red Hat (maybe, I'm starting to think about Mandrake if what I heard is true about AOL+RH), but I'm trying to understand just how compatible Linux is with AMD processors?!?! This is probably just a ridiculus question, but I've heard some people say that it's not as compatible with AMD, so don't laugh at me, I'm just getting into this whole Linux/Unix universe!! I want to run an AMD XP, but if I can't take full advantage of Linux (in the long run) I will go with a P4.

So what do you think? :o
