Question 32bit to 64bit

At the moment I am using mandrake official 10.0 on a 32-Bit PC. I would like to upgrade my system to a AMD64-bit processor. Is there a mandrake 10 official 64bit distribution? And if there is will I be able to run my 32 bit applications (es loki games, maya etc...)? Is it possible to have both 32 and 64 bit OS on my PC and use the boot-loader to choose witch to use every time?

I'm not sure about 10.0 Official for AMD64, but there is a 10.0CE edition for it. Yes, you should be able to run 32bit apps, and again yes, you can have multiple distros on 1 computer.
