to change from the 64-bit kernel to a 32-bit I do believe that it will warn
you that it is not compatible with the current install.

Seeing as how this is 11.0, I can't comment on 11.2 because I only
have it installed on a 32bit proc ATM. However, if it is listing
compatible kernels, then why did it also list the ppc64 and ps3
kernels(which would also be 64bit but totally incompatible with x64)?
That doesn't make sense either. Now, Software Management didn't show
those 2 but did show the pae kernel.
