  You'll be fine with x86_64 -- I've been using the 64-bit versions of
Fedora since FC8.  (One Backend, 3 frontends)

  IIRC, the only thing that's "sensitive" to running in one CPU only is the
Channel Scanner, which can be resolved by starting mythtv-setup with
'taskset' to force it to run in the first cpu/core.  (Although this may not
be an issue any more with 0.22?  I dunno...)  ;-)
