These are the drivers I used to set up WinXP x64 on my AMD64/ABIT KV8-MAX3 machine:
- VIA VT8237 SATA RAID driver
- 3COM 3C940 NIC driver (unofficial)
- Realtek ALC658 sound driver
- AMD64 processor driver
- ATI Radeon 9550 video driver
In slightly less than one hour, I've got the new OS installed. Everything looks and feels the same as before (as compared with XP Pro 32-bit) but wait a minute...there are two versions of IE -- 32-bit and 64-bit! And under Task Manager, 32-bit process names are tagged with "*32". There are now two program files folder i.e. "Program Files (x86)" and "Program Files". I bet there are more differences under the hood but more of that later.

What a day! It's PC Fair event again but this time at the spanking new Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre. I went there about lunch hour for a "short tour" -- just in time before the monthly MIND meeting at Tower 2. As for the MIND meeting, it was one of the more interesting meetings as both Akila Manian and Justin Lee gave insightful presentations on ASP.NET 2.0.
After a stimulating half day, I couldn't resist taking a night shot (photo) of one of the towers as I was about to head home.
