Hi Christian,

Thanks for your kind words. In order to install 64-bit, you need to boot
a 64-bit kernel. You should be able to do this by selecting "yes" to the
question about "whether you want to interact with the IPL" from the PDC

At the palo prompt that follows, enter '0' to modify the kernel
filename, and append "64". Then 'b' to boot. This should start the
64-bit kernel instead of the default 32-bit one.

regards, Kyle
