That's a new one on me. Never heard that, might need to check your source and email them. I too am running AMD 2400+ on Windows XP Pro. And many of my tech friends use AMD.

well i think it was more about i was reading something on the amd 64 on a site like game tiger n i click on the more info button or info button for the AMd 64 3400+ and it said this-- "The AMD Athlon 64 processor is the first and only Windows-®compatible 64-bit PC processor. The AMD Athlon 64 processor runs on AMD64, a revolutionary technology that allows the processor to run 32-bit applications at full speed while enabling a new generation of powerful 64-bit software applications. Advanced 64-bit operating systems for the AMD64 platform from Microsoft,® Red Hat, SuSE, and TurboLinux have already been announced, and they only run on processors with AMD64 technology. With the introduction of the AMD Athlon 64 processor so i kind of might have gotten wronge info from interpriting wrong or something

Yes, it sounds like you misinterpreted the comments in that article. Perhaps this bit is what confused you:

Seems to be that bit in bold is what confused you. But the advance 64-bit operatings systems only do run on AMD64 processors, that's not saying any windows, just the 64-bit ones.
