And I m looking at the cpu part of the fourm about the Hammer chip that will be doing 64 bit which Linux Which I seen the hammer running Linux/windows xp.

No, there are perfectly working 32bit versions of the latest linux kernels. It doesn't have to be 64 bits.

Will Linux on the Hammer be 32-bit or 64-bit (i.e. if you compile a tgz, which will it be?)

I don't know, but I'm guessing there will be a parameter on the compiler to let you decide.

If you're running a 64 bit compiled kernel, and a 64 bit distro, I'm sure the compiler will make 64 bit binaries...
