I'm running an AMD64 machine and haven't had any problems with that.

Are you getting a grub menu? Then either the recovery mode or using 'single'
or '1' on the kernel line of the boot should do it. I think something else
is happening on your machine when you say "it is overridden by the full boot'.

Don't know what that means.
It means that from boot-up the single user prompt comes on screen, I get
as far as

typing in a userid and a few characters of the relevant passwd then KDE
blots this out with the 'windows' multi-login box, and I can only log
in to the

full multi-user OS
I see no sign of a grub menu. Aside from this, does 'telinit 1' work on
your 64 bit machine?
