Woody works fine, even with a 64 bit kernel. Sarge/sid doesn't work
with a 64 bit kernel due to some bugs in the 32 bit emulation.
You can still use sarge with a 64 bit kernel but some things fail in
strange ways, like df. Hopefully this will be fixed one of these days.

When running a 32 bit kernel the only problem you should have is the
age of stable. You might have to update the kernel for some newer
