64-bits kernels are not only intended for systems with tons of ram. Those 
kernels usually have enabled the "nx bit" and AFAIK, only 32 bits PAE 
kernels enable such feature.

BTW, my Shuttle box has also a ram limitation of 2 GiB (and currently 
using only 1 GiB) but has installed "amd64". It runs fine, without 
noticeable drawbacks.
