| 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.

Alternatively, boot from Knoppix (assuming it works on AMD64?),
partition the disc etc, untar the pure64 chroot directly onto the
partition, install a kernel and set up your choice of bootloader.  That
way you don't need to install another distribution on there just to
bootstrap it.
