I've just wanted to try to enable 64bit (I've tried to do it using k64, mayby another software will be better?) but I got a notice "Your machine 'Macmini4,1' does not appear to be compatible with the 64-bit Kernel. Do you want to continue anyway?" (I have got an identical machine as your mac mini server aluminum 4,1).
Have you bypassed this notice and continued?
I'm afraid to crash my server system and I would appreciate if you explain me how you have done it and have you checked that all servieces on your server works properly?
I'm not an andministrator and all your advice will be very helpful for me!

Thanks in advance,
wishes from Krakow

How did you measure this? Many people have stated they have noticed a performance increase by going 64-bit, but in reality, there was none.
