installing i386 software on x86_64 arch--easy way?


I'm running Fedora Core 2 x86_64 and I've been having trouble installing software for which I couldn't find any x86_64 RPM's. I first tried just rpm -i with the i386 files but they complain about lacking i386 libraries (they presumably would be in lib64 rather than lib). So then I tried downloading the source and doing ./configure, make, make install, but I wasn't sure what paremeters to pass to configure and make install so it compiles for my architecture.

If I'm approaching this the right way, how do you tell the configure script that I want to compile for the x86_64? If not, what am I doing wrong?
