64 bit from 32 bit


Hello Linux Great Gurus,

I have a linux redhat(redhat 5) machine which is 32 bit. I would like it make it as 64 bit.

Is there any solutions or i need to reinstall my OS.

You have to reinstall the OS. You can save your files though and copy them back over, but the 64-bit OS needs a new kernel, new library files, and some new programs to work.
