You can not. You must create a woody chroot with debootstrap and install
the biarch stuff from alioth into it in order to cross-compile the
kernel, and do not forget the gcc wrapper.

And you should not use 2.6.4, it seems to have problems with IA32
emulation - take 2.6.5-rc2 or newer.

Actually not, because the biarch packages are completely outdated
compared to actual sarge versions.
