I've got an old 700MHz Compaq which seems to work fine, including the 
Cisco wireless card.

I'd like to know too.

I was thinking of a dual Opteron system at one point.  Someone on 
USENET suggested that I look at the Athlon 64-X2 dual-core 
processors.  It was a much better performance/price ratio, and that's 
what I got.  Even if not everything works in 64-bit mode now, 
eventually things will catch up.  In the mean time, my fallback 
position is that I can still run in 32-bit mode, and 32-bit SMP mode
