This depends.  Is your kernel compiled as a 64-bit enabled kernel, or
is it still 32-bit only?  If you have a full 64-bit kernel, then you
can use the chroot path.  However, I suspect that since you have a
32-bit OS, your kernel compiled in the same manner, so you could
either use the reboot option, or compile yourself a 64-bit kernel (
making sure you enable the 32-bit compatibility option).
