What did you do anyway?  If you installed 64-bit F12 on a 32-bit system, it's not going to run even if you do install the 64-bit kernel.  Everything is 64-bit, kernel, apps, utilities, etc.  On a 32-bit system, everything has to be 32-bit.  If that's the case, you're going to have to reinstall.

Now, you can run the 32-bit distro on a 64-bit system, and on a 64-bit install on 64-bit hardware run 32-bit apps concurrently with 64-bit ones, but not the other way around.
