    Switching from 32-bit to 64-bit "en vivo" this way is begging for
    Backing up your images and Xen setup is *good*. I've seen reports of
    people running 32-bit VM's successfully on 64-bit OS's, but I've
    personally had serious trouble with running non-rebuilt apps from
    environments in a 64-bit environment. (Wacom devices, in particular.)

    Why do you have to update your server to 64-bit but not your VM's?

64-bit was the request of the boss for the base operating system, but i could install i386 also. the instantaneous installation was actually not for active service. but now the virtual machines are running, and i have to switch the operating system cause we do no use fedora on our linux servers at all. also you do not recommend to install 64-bit? than i will install i386, i think there would not be such a big difference,or?

thank you Nico!
I haven't tried running 32-bit DomU's under 64-bit operating sytems. I may get a chance to in 2 weeks, but it just seems to be begging for trouble.
