I just inherited a server that has dual quad core Xeons and 16 gigs of RAM running RHEL5. When I started to kick the tires of the server I noticed the dom0 was the 32bit version of RHEL5.

My question.. aside from being able to run full virtualization (for Windows and unmodified Linux domUs) is there any compelling reason to install the 64bit version of RHEL5 if I'm only going to run paravirtualized domUs?
