If you like debian, another option is ubuntu
(http://www.ubuntulinux.org) - there are athlon64 isos available. Its a
fairly new and untested distribution, but it does seem to have a nice
community forming around it. I don't have any athlon64 experience, but
I can tell you ubuntu runs nicely on my celeron 600 laptop =)
