WHAT is broken about 'the 64 bit scene' ?!?    I have 64 bit Opteron 
systems happily running CentOS 3 in my lab, zero problems related to the 
bitness of them.   These servers and installs are over 5 years old (HP 
DL585, with 4 x Opteron 850 and 8GB ram, new in 2005).

IMHO, its insane to be installing 32 bits on modern servers that have 
12-48gb of ram, and dozens of terabytes of disk space in the 21st 
century.     THATS broken.
