Slackware 64 Bit .. Needs 32 bit compatibility

Well finally Slackware goes 64 bit... SWEET! But now I have a problem i need 32 bit compatibility for running windows apps with wine and Mostly Photoshop and Dreamweaver.

Can anyone point me in the right direction to setup 32 bit compatibility?

I agree.Slamd64 will let you install 32 bit apps.My worry is that it will cease to exist soon as people jump ship to Slackware 64.I hope this does not happen.
