Yes.  I have all the relevant 32 bit libraries installed.  32 bit apps
also need the 32 bit dri module.
e.g. /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/dri/r200_dri.so for radeon, which are not
included in the x86_64 version of Centos.  However, extracting the
module from the x86 distro got me a bit further.

Unfortunately, from what I gather, back in the 2.6.9 days, the kernel 64
bit kernel module had problems running 32 bit apps so I was not actually
able to get 32 bit glx apps working under Centos 4.2 x86_64.

Oh well, maybe in September...
