Thanks Bean. Totally appreciate your help with this.

I'm not familiar with the x86_64 support, and these notes were created 6 months ago, but I thought they would be a good place to start... Don't hesitate to remove anything you think is misleading. I'm going to try to update it with better info as soon as possible.

Also, please be clear, we are not talking about Xserver. I'm trying to run 64 Bit Linux on an Apple MacIntel Xserve.

The systems I have are 2 x 2.66 Dual-Core Intel Xeon.

From the wiki page you put up, you're obvious not familiar with
grub2's efi support. x86_64-efi have been in grub2 for a long time,
you just need to know how to build it, take a look at this page:

Also, you can check out this post at ubuntu forum:

D4T have successfully booted both 32-bit and 64-bit linux with Xserver
1.1 and 1.2.

BTW, please don't put anything you're not sure of to the wiki page,
it's misleading for other users.

We're interested, I've got 30 Xserves that will be paper weights pretty soon if we don't get a 64 bit linux OS on them... rendering for 3d fx in movies.

I'll try to start a page shortly to
combine all the info we've gathered so far.
