Difference between Kernels

Was wondering if it would be easier to use a AMD64-K8 kernel off the i386 disk than using AMD iso's.
I was planning on setting up my wireless with the 2.4 kernel, then swapping it
with an AMD64 kernel, does anyone know if that works ?
Also, is there any such thing as a 2.4 AMD64 kernel ?

I doubt theres an AMD 2.4 kernel. Why not just used 2.6? The i386 cds are compiled in 32-bit. the AMD64 cds are compiled in 64-bit. The i386 cds will run on the amd64 comp. but it won't be as fast.

I've tried using a 2.6 previously but couldn't get it to work with my wireless card.
I'm using the acx111 and have noticed a few others with problems using acx and 2.6's.
