The LiveDVD is available in two flavors: a hybrid x86/x86_64 version, and
an x86_64 multilib version. The livedvd-x86-amd64-32ul-11.0 version
will work on 32-bit x86 or 64-bit x86_64. If your CPU architecture 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-11.0 version is for x86_64 only.
