Well.. Here's one way..

1. Install a distro that supports AMD64 (Red Hat, Fedora, SuSE).
2. Install the chrooted pure64 port on a separate partition.
3. Compile a 64-bit kernel deb or just use the kernel from the other
4. Setup lilo or grub to use the separate Debian partition as the root
5. Reboot.

Not ideal, but it should work.
