32-bit OS on a 64-bit computer

I get this message when I begin an install on a Dell PowerEdge 2850; is there a 64-bit version of OES SP2?

No, OES is based on SLES9 x86 only. I believe the forthcoming (sometime
in 2007) OES2 will have 64bit support.

You can install 32-bit OES on 64-bit chipsets though. It seems strange
you would get a error message (I can't see the message but I'm assuming it
is an error message). I have 32-bit OES Linux running on AMD64. Were you
installing into a VM?

It is not an "error" message, but more of a "warning", letting the user
know that they are simply installing a 32bit OS on 64bit hardware. You
are correct that there is no problems doing so, however.

There's absolutely no problems with this, except that it will sit there
forever and never actually do anything! Just hitting OK will do the trick
