	We have a mix of 32 and 64 bit systems on our grid.  Apart from the issues 
Xavier mentioned like having the 32 bit compatible libraries installed, the 
only problem we've run into is related to any in-house .so's that we've 
compiled.  Have to do some fancy footwork with paths and envars if you have 
those being sourced from a common location.  Assuming you're just running 
apps local to each system, you should be fine though.
