Yes, but it may not be easy depending on the application you want to run. For
instance wine requires 32b libs. (although I have not completely understood
wine requirements regarding 32b vs 64b)

It's still not clear to me how we should install ia32 libs on amd64 systems. If I try to install a 32b library, sometimes it will try to overwrite an amd64, sometimes not. Pinning is the right choice? For instance, libasound, etc. The 32b libraries will be installed correctly on /emul/ia32? Is there any howto to solve this problems? For now, I'm still using ia32-libs and ia32-libs-gtk from testing to keep things like skype and firefox 3.5 working.

"best" is difficult to estimate... Safer means sticking to Lenny.

If you need more recent packages, either use testing or unstable.
Blending Lenny and Sid is more risky.

Currently, fglrx-*=1:9-5-1 is the latest you can install on sid/amd64 with
kernel 2.6.29.
