no, x64 cpus run 32bit oses just perfectly. else noone would buy an x64
cause most people run combined 16/32 bit oses (windows).
but if you run a 32bit distro, then you can not execute any 64bit code,
your processor is x64 capable.
a 64 bit kernel OTOH can run 32bit apps, but you need a full set of
32bit libraries (multilib).
and there ARE performance problems running 32bit apps under "linux 64".
i tried to set up a 64 linux,
and i got 10% less frames or so under quake4.
