  For completeness, you could always cross-compile a 64-bit kernel 
without modules and tell the bootloader to use that with the 32-bit 
userspace (host) system, reboot into that, mount the tools you've built 
at /mnt/lfs, then chroot.

  As Stan said, don't forget to enable IA_32 emulation in the 64-bit 
kernel if you do this or if you build multilib.
