You must use a double-layer DVD for the burn for the 64-bit image. Then
it works OK. The 64-bit OS has many more libs than the 32 as it must
also support 32-bit applications. Thus the larger size. By the time the
LTSP and school applications are added, it simply won't fit on a single
layer DVD. Try installing from the network install process. Burn a CD of
the image.iso file from the images directory and make the loop-back
mounted DVD image available through a NFS or HTTP share process. 

Make sure when using any home burned CD/DVD that the image files have
their MD5/SHA1 checksum verified and then the first time they are used
it is best to do the disk check process on each disk to verify the burn
was accurate.
