install 64bit (using 32bit) Debian squeeze.
I thought it would be easier, but maybe not.
Make my squeeze Penguin (32 bit) dual boot with 64bit squeeze.
1st attempt. (fail)
Using USB stick, install 64bit onto new partition. -> I cannot find 64bit boot.img.gz (hd-media directory is missing.)
Using existing HD partition, boot into 64bit vmlinuz and initrd using lilo. -> lilo chokes, kernel size too big.
3rd attempt. (I have not figured out how to)
compile 64bit bzImage on 32bit squeeze. (I do not see any option -make menuconfig.)
4th attempt. (I do not know the result yet.)
Come here and ask.
I am sure that somebody has done this. Part of my problems include that squeeze penguin does not have optical drive and that no grub (elilo) installed.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.
I think I was totally off track.
1. Just because CPU has intel logo on, I was confident that IA64 is the one I need. However, IA64 is designed for Itanium, I should go to AMD64, (my Penguin has EMT64 chip.)
So, I do have an access to USB stick image.
2. I should have sought the way to "cross compile kernel", instead of kernel options.
