I cannot get 64-bit system in VBox, I guess because my processor is not

You can only install 64 bit guest OSes on a 64 bit host OS running on
a 64 bit CPU... if there's a 32 bit anything in that chain... no 64
bit guest :-)

uname -a
Linux wahoo 2.6.35-rc6-16-default #1 SMP 2010-08-02 14:39:22 +0200 x86_64
x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

But *something* reports that VBox "cannot run 64-bin system on 32-bit
hardware", or something similar, iirc.
