I am looking at learning assembler, I've done some googling but there seems a lot of different information out there.
What is the most commonly used type of assembler, is it X86? My processor is an AMD Athlon XP2200+, does this have any bearing on what I choose to learn?
What is the best, most widely used IDE/Compiler/debugger. I wouldn't mind something similiar to Studio 2005's IDE.
Any recommendations for first rate resources for beginners to get started?
Any help much appreciated,
