The Gentoo-Ten LiveDVD is available in two flavors, a hybrid x86/x86_64
version, and an x86_64-only version. The livedvd-x86-amd64-32ul-10.0 will work on x86 or
x86_64. If your arch is x86, then boot with the default gentoo kernel. If
your arch is amd64 boot
with the gentoo64 kernel. This means you can boot a 64bit kernel and install a customized 64bit userland while using the provided 32bit userland. The livedvd-amd64-multilib-10.0 version is for x86_64 only.
