title says all, im considering moving my htpc duties over from a mce based system to linux 64 bit

reasons for wanting to do this are simply this....

i am a faithful folder for stanford universities folding at home project
it turns out that thier new smp client which utilizes a 64 bit distro only and a dual or more cored cpu blows away any of thier single or dual core clients for windows or 32 bit linux distros

it would be nice to move all of my computers over to smp folding on 64 bit distros, i have on all but one, my mce based htpc

will this 5500 card work on a 64 bit distro, my apologies, i tried looking in these forums and not finding anything really, i tried googling and again not much luck, i have a happauge 150 card already, i am also looking into using that under a 64 bit distro and not having a lot of luck finding info on that either

the smp client from stanford only runs under a 64 distro so it must be 64 bit, otherwise i would just have done it on a 32 bit distro and been done with it, please dont try and tell me go 32 bit etc..... it must be a 64 bit, it would be very beneficial to my folding efforts if i could also delegate this htpcs duties on a 64 bit distro, if this card can do it and i gained hdtv capabilites out of this that would rocks, i have an olevia tv capable of hd i just dont have any hd able devices to feed it hd signals yet so thats why im lurking for information on whats out there

thanks for your time

Yes, I have it working for atsc on 64-bit 2.6.18 gentoo linux. I'm not sure how ntsc works but I believe some people have it working.
