Default Installing 64-bit nvidia driver under 32-bit userland

Most places on the web say it doesn't work, but by following the
instruction on this nvnews thread, I got driver v177.82 running on
kernel 2.6.27-1~experimental.1~snapshot.12406.

What different abilities do I have?

That thread refers to 169.12 which is apparently too old to compile
for newer kernels. 177.82 amd64 works just fine, no different from the
i386 driver. Afair, 169.12 i386 was the last one to work for UT2004
until 173.08 or 173.14.12 ...

It started out maybe referring to 169.12.

But I'm telling you, since I was one of the people corresponding in
the latter part of the thread, that using philipl's technique, I was
able to get 177.82 working with 2.6.27.
