Sorry, but I read them some time ago, so I remember the results, but not the 
URLs.

There is no hassle. Everything just works. For "incompatible proprietary code", 
there are 32-bit multilibs. (Not that you should use proprietary crap in the 
first place, but it _does_ work on 64-bit just as well as on 32-bit. If it is 
not compatible with the current Fedora, it won't run on the 32-bit edition 
either.)
