No! I don't admin two installs!!! And yes, I am running gentoo and wait for 
every package to compile (except openoffice, firefox and proprietary flash).
I just admin _one_ gentoo 64bit install. Installing a _very small_ chroot for 
32bit binaries like flash is done by the gentoo install system totally 
without my interference! It just came as a dependency when installing flash 
and firefox-bin!

That is how it should work! Using all the benefits of 64bit while still using 
the 32bit apps without any further hazzle of manually setting up the chroot 
and the things. And gentoo works that way!

/me stops with this now...
