I am sorry if this has been asked before, but I checked the FAQ and news 
archives and couldn't find an answer.

I built my LFS system on a 32bit Intel platform, a while ago.
I then converted to an AMD and have recompiled the kernel for Athlon. 

I now would like a 64 bit system.

If I am cross-compiling for AMD 64, am I able to chroot or do I need to 
re-boot. Since it is my primary machine, chrooting would mean that I could 
continue to work :)

Thanks for all your effort
