It is, in theory, possible to start from a x86 system, build an amd64 kernel, reboot and then walk your userland up to amd64 gradually. However, I've never seen/heard of it done in practice, and it would be a tricky (read: error-prone) set of steps. If you have some extra diskspace, you can even do the install in a chroot (debootstrap FTW!) and only reboot once it is complete, minimizing downtime. -- Boyd Stephen Smith Jr. ,= ,-_-. =. email@example.com ((_/)o o(\_)) ICQ: 514984 YM/AIM: DaTwinkDaddy `-'(. .)`-' http://iguanasuicide.net/ \_/
