Yes. So use the x86 Live CD. Is that a problem?

Yes, it's a problem in this case. I would like to confirm that specific functionality works with the Fedora 64-bit kernel. As an example, my laptop has a Broadcom 4306 wireless NIC that currently only works with ndiswrapper when running with a 64-bit kernel. It seems like 64-bit is the poor step-child when it comes to things like wireless support, memory card readers, etc. Anything that doesn't work 64-bit but works under 32-bit tends to get a response of, "Just run 32-bit."
