When I first did this (a year or 18 months ago maybe?), I'm reasonably
certain that i386 bootblocks couldn't load amd64 kernels - I installed
the amd64 bootblocks and they had no problems with 32- or 64-bit
kernels.  I'm of the understanding that -current i386 bootblocks now
can load amd64 kernels, but I can't confirm that.
