Do you mean you have an x86_64 with a 64 bit OS installed, and now you
want to use the 32 bit kernel? If so, you can't, because the 32 bit
kernel wouldn't know how to run any of the installed 64 bit binaries
(important things like init and bash).
If you just mean you want to use the 32 bit OS on an x86_64, then all
you have to do is install the i386 OS instead of the x86_64 OS. It will
work just fine (it'll just be 32 bit only).
