I think you still need that 32 bit system to make the ISO file.  

I just now tested this on some of my own stuff.  I don't know of any easy way to install virt-p2v-image-builder on a 64 bit F16 system - it doesn't show up with yum.

[root fedora1664-p2v /]# yum list available | grep p2v
[root fedora1664-p2v /]# rpm -qa | grep p2v
[root fedora1664-p2v ~]# virt-p2v-image-builder
bash: virt-p2v-image-builder: command not found...
[root fedora1664-p2v ~]# find / -name virt-p2v-image-builder
find: `/home/gregs/.gvfs': Permission denied
[root fedora1664-p2v ~]#
[root fedora1664-p2v /]# cd /
[root fedora1664-p2v /]# ls -R | grep image-builder

I don't have a 32 bit F16 system handy here, but I've seen and installed virt-v2v-image-builder on the 32 bit systems at other sites.  It shows up as expected and installs on 32 bit systems, but doesn't show up on 64 bit systems.  

That's why you still need that 32 bit system - to make that ISO file so you can boot the source physical machine.
