And in another email (JeOS for 64 bits machies):

The two messages you sent to the list are slightly confusing. In one you
ask if the JeOS images include 64bit support, and in the other one you
say that you know that they are 32bit. So I hope I am understanding your
According to the information on the ubuntu site, the JeOS images are
only available in 32bit (i386 images) and only for ubuntu 8.04 and 8.10.
32bit images can be run on both 64bit and 32bit hosts in both KVM and
full virtualization. Paravirtualization might require some tinkering,
but since your processor is capable of KVM, you shouldn't worry about that.
As for your question if your 32bit host can use all resources of the
server: They can use every resource that is assigned to them, except for
memory. The amount of memory you can assign to a 32bit vm is limited to
4GB (with the possible exception of PAE enabled vm's, but I don't know
if PAE is even possible for virtual machines).
I hope this answers your questions. If it doesn't just reply (and maybe
clarify your questions a bit)
