  Oops!
   I installed FC6 i386 on a new box: Dell OptiPlex 745 with core 2 duo
em64T CPU.
It should have been x86_64. Is it worth changing? Can I 'upgrade' or
do I need to do a new clean install?
      Thanks guys!

Ps I have / and /home is separate partitions - if I do a clean install
can I just throw away the / partition and keep /home?
You're better off re-installing. I don't think upgrade is an option
that way, and even if it was, I wouldn't trust it.
And yeah if /home is a separate partition, make sure the installer
doesn't try to format it.
