If you use grub, prepare to abandon it in favor of either the binary 
version or lilo, which has a binary blob anyway...

From what I understand, it's either impossible or just extremely 
impractical... something about initializing memory tables or the IOMMU 
being required before you can switch to 64-bit mode...

I've been up for almost 24 hours (without properly preparing) so I'm a 
little fuzzy right now...
