Hi Brian:

No:
* 64 Bit is not supported by Dell at all.  There is of course a 64 bit
Ubuntu, but you are on your own
* None of the systems that will be having 8.10 have internal modems, so
no drivers are provided for them

I would recommend keeping the system at 8.04 if you need to have a
modem.

I upgraded my 1420n laptop to Intrepid 8.10 AMD 64. Is that driver
available for it? Every so often I have to use my modem.
