    i have 6Gb of memory in my machine, and i'm running 64-bit kubuntu.

    the motherboard is an asus p5q, which, according to the dealer, is 64-bit compatible.

    there's 256Mb of memory on the graphics card.

    the output of lshw is the following (notice how it says 'width 32 bits' for the entire system, although both the memory and the cpu are listed as having 'width 64 bits'):
