I am using a intel(R) Dual core(R) @1.67 GHz processor and wish to know whether it is 32 or 64 bit processor. Is there any wy to know that so that I may choose my operating system accordingly.

Thanks,

Yes, there are several options. You could for example run
hwinfo --cpu

you can also take a look on wikipedia. I don't think the type of your processor is correct. if it's a core 2 duo, than it's 64bit.

The computer BIOS program will give you information about your machine. There should be a message on the screen as the machine boots telling what key to press to enter the BIOS program.

type:


cat /proc/cpuinfo

into a terminal and if you see "lm" on the flags line then it is a 64bit processor.
