The way it is gonna work (or suppose to anyway) is you would install
32bit OS as normal, and the installer *should* detect which system you
have and install that particular kernel for you automatically.  You
shouldn't have to do anything manually (having some weird or out of
ordinary setup might be different).  Downloading the DVD or doing an NFS
install and such, should be as normal and automatically it should all
work.  I don't think it's setup that way currently, but not sure when it
will be neither.
