Question Is it possible to building i386 rpm on x86_64 system?

As said in a few previous threads I'm planning to set up a xen bank.

If I set up fc7 - 9 as x86_64 is it possible to compile i386 rpm packages on the x86_64 install?

Yes, x86 64 is backward compatible so it will support x86 32 (i386 32 specifically).

You will have to specify the architecture in the .spec file you use to build the rpm.
