Well, if you're dead set on using it... You could always set it up to
run in a 32bit chroot.
I'm not all that sure how to go about doing that (never had a 64bit CPU

With some searching, I found
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=24575 . Perhaps that will be
able to get you off in the right direction.
