Installing an i386 OS on an ia64 system

I installed the i386 etch distribution on my 64-bit system since the
ia64 distribution had been burned on suspect media and wouldn't boot.


What am I missing out on?

What components are actually different between these two systems? The
stock kernels, for example, don't seem to be different.

What tells your system which binaries to grab? The sources.list file
doesn't indicate hardware type. 

Can I transition my system from i386 binaries to ia64 binaries without
starting from scratch?
